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

Building History

The building at 415 N. Illinois Avenue was built in 1920 and was previously home to the Hunter Motors Company. Hunter Motors was known as the go-to local dealership for Rambler's and Renaults in Carbondale, Illinois. The Rambler was a compact car, comfortable for families, that was manufactured by the American Motors Corportation (AMC) between 1958 and 1969. Renault was a French automobile manufacturer.  The Renault Dauphine and the Caravelle roadster were popular mid-century models in the United States. 

A Hunter Motor Company ad from 1960 stated " Our help you pick the Rambler to fit your needs". 

U-Haul acquired the former Hunter Motors Co. building in 1979. 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.
