Republic advocates for adaptive reuse

In the May 25, 2008 Arizona Republic, a full-page editorial, Preserving our sense of place,” advocates for the widespread consideration and use of “adaptive reuse,” the process of adapting old buildings for new purposes without damaging the historic integrity of the structure.  Five central Phoenix buildings are highlighted as examples of what is or could be accomplished: ca. 1905 Phoenix Seed and Feed Co. and 1929 Sun Mercantile Building (both in the Warehouse District), 1930 First Baptist Church and 1931 Professional Building (both in downtown), and the original Smitty’s at 16th St. and Buckeye.
