Adaptive Reuse in Cuyahoga Falls, OH at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Cuyahoga Falls

Building History

In 1909, the Falls Rubber Company constructed this building to meet high-quality rubber demands for the new and exciting automobile industry. Between 1910 and 1916, tire production doubled every two years. Ohio became a hub of tire manufacturing with one-third of the 134 tire companies in the United States located in the stateBy 1924 the Falls Rubber Company had passed nearly $3,000,000 in sales, greatly benefiting the Cuyahoga Falls community with jobs and tax revenues.  Known for manufacturing ‘steady and powerful tires’the Falls Rubber Company patented never-pinch rim covers in 1925. After World War II, the company changed their name to Cooper Tire and Rubber Company.  After this location was closed, U-Haul invested in the local economy and, through adaptive reuse, opened this location in 2016.

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.
