Chicago is one of five cities to take part in the Partnership for Building Reuse. Repurposing buildings is obviously more eco friendly, but it also helps to support community revitalization in diverse neighborhoods. A study by ULI and NTHP (National Trust for Historic Preservation) shows that older, “high character” buildings tend to help build the liveliest neighborhoods. A team of researchers used the best of restaurants and stores from “Best of Chicago 2015” poll as well as Chicago Magazine’s 2015 “Best of Chicago” list and it showed that 62.5% of Chicago’s best restaurants, retailers, and best bars are in areas with high character scores. Now with the Fulton Market explosion, adaptive reuse doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
