Adaptive Reuse in Evanston, IL at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Evanston

Building History

The Red Top Cab building was built in 1960. Red Top Cab company is locally owned and has proudly provided transportation services for over 35 years. U-Haul acquired the building in 1977. Upon purchase the building was occupied by Pelouze, a food scale manufacturing company.  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.
