Adaptive Reuse in Des Plaines, IL at U-Haul of Des Plaines

Serving U-Haul customers since 1976, this facility was built through Adaptive Reuse of an abandoned building.

Building History

The Jet Cit Car Wash building was built in the 1960's and U-Haul acquired the building in 1976. 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.
