This year, aware that industry experts are predicting that adaptive reuse is likely to be recognized as a distinct product category within commercial real estate by 2021, we decided to dig deep into these projects and the people behind them. We examined a
number of projects across several categories, eventually coming up with those we felt were
the best of the best in this space.
In the following pages, GlobeSt Real Estate Forum is spotlighting the achievements of
those who have had a hand in delivering adaptive reuse solutions across the country. While
we were at it, we also took a look at some of the top projects in Opportunity Zones, because
oftentimes such projects have an element of adaptive reuse to them.
We judged the projects based on many criteria such as displaying innovation, furthering
ROI and demonstrating a proven ability to achieve goals.
From innovative reuses of abandoned space, to historical preservation, to overall design,
the following projects—and companies involved—not only met these criteria but also have
had a key impact on the local community.
