Adaptive Reuse in Cincinnati, OH at U-Haul Moving & Storage at Downtown Museum Center

Building History

The Benard Seinsheimer Corporation, a paper wholesaler, first opened its doors in Cincinatti in 1859 and constructed this building in 1922During the late 1930s, this location specialized in manufacturing blackout window shades for the impending WWIIwhile changing the company name to Clopay as an acronym for cloth and paper.  In 1964, Clopay entered the garage door business and served Cincinnati at this location for more than sixty years. Located adjacent to Crosley Field, the Cincinnati Reds former baseball stadium until the 1970s, Clopay was prominently visible in numerous photos of the stadium, thus woven into the fabric of cultural history. Upon Clopay closing its doors at this location, U-Haul acquired the property in 2016 to support infill development, a process to help Cincinatti lower its carbon footprint. 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.
