Several of DePaul’s recent projects have employed adaptive reuse, or “the process that adapts buildings for new uses while retaining their historic features,” according to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The reuse of historical buildings, once community assets that became eyesores, is about more than renovating an existing structure. Adaptive reuse can:
Incite community revitalization
Create construction jobs and permanent jobs
And, through DePaul’s programs, provide housing and support for numerous people in need
Those are the goals of two of our most recent projects: the Carriage Factory Apartments in Rochester, New York and the Riverside Apartments in Buffalo, New York.
