Adaptive Reuse in Milton, ON at U-Haul Moving & Storage at Milton Crossroads

Building History

Nexans is a French company which manufactures copper and optical fiber cable products for the infrastructure, industrial and construction markets. Nexans has an industrial presence in nearly 40 countries and in 1987 they constructed this one-story building in Milton Ontario to serve as the logistics center for products built in Fergus, Ontario. U-Haul purchased this location in 2015 and converted it into a U-Haul center offering truck and trailer rentals, self-storage and U-Box storage. 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.
