Adaptive Reuse Story Map is Available

The City of Tucson's story map highlights the Adaptive Reuse Program by educating people about adaptive reuse, how the program works, and showcasing good examples in Tucson. Launched in 2017, this pilot program helps encourage reinvestment throughout the city in the form of adaptive reuse of existing buildings.

The program draws on supporting research ("Older, Smaller, Better in Tucson") and successful programs in other cities, particularly Phoenix's Adaptive Reuse Program, to provide a suite of incentives and code relief tools for the reuse of existing buildings in Tucson. An Adaptive Reuse Toolkit is available, which can be used to help expedite the process of converting an existing building to accommodate a new use.
