Adaptive Reuse in West Sacramento, CA at U-Haul of West Sacramento

Building History

Firestone was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio. Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone kindled a friendship in 1897 and from that point on Ford exclusively chose Firestone tires for his vehicles until 2001. In 1926, the first Firestone Complete Auto Care opened, helping customers with maintenance and repairs on vehicles and tires. The following year Harvey Firestone traveled to southern California and invested in nearly 40 acres to build a new manufacturing plant, doubling its size a year later.   

Auto manufacturers suffered from massive lay-offs in the mid-1970's, severely affecting Firestone businesses.  Numerous locations, including this West Sacramento store, were abandonedU-Haul acquired the building in 1978 for adaptive reuse. 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.
