Partnership for Building Reuse

Partnership for Building Reuse

Reusing and retrofitting vacant and underused buildings across the country will help cities become more sustainable while meeting changing market demands.   

The National Trust for Historic Preservation and Urban Land Institute (ULI) created the Partnership for Building Reuse in 2012 to enhance opportunities for building reuse in major U.S. cities. Recognizing the environmental, economic and community benefits of reusing vacant and blighted property, the Partnership for Building Reuse brings together community groups, real estate developers and civic leaders around the common goal of making it easier to reuse and retrofit these valuable assets.

Launched in Los Angeles, a total of five cities will be participating in the initative prior to a national convening and publication in 2016. Read our current researcch:
