Adaptive Reuse in Peoria, IL at U-Haul Moving & Storage at War Memorial Dr

Building History

The Travelodge building was built in 1980 and U-haul acquired the property in 2018. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens’ needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.
