As the name implies, Adaptive Re-use is the process of taking a building that was built for a very specific purpose and remolding it for a new and at times, a very different use. Many times, the exterior of the structures are restored to their original appearance while the interiors are completely stripped and rebuilt for the new use. In the case of manufacturing or industrial buildings, the interiors were large open spaces that are easily divided or converted for the new purpose.
- Bottleworks: The Coca-Cola bottling and distribution facility that became condominiums, offices, retail spaces and commercial offices.
- Foundry Street: Warehouses that become banquet and meeting rooms for the Classic Center.
- Cine`: A tire recapping facility that is converted to a theater and restaurant spaces.
- L.H. Leathers Bldg: A manufacturing facility that becomes restaurants, retail spaces, and office units.
