Abstract: Most cities have older buildings, many of which have historic significance. Some are structurally sound but have fallen into disuse. Others may require massive rehabilitation, but their historic, esthetic or social attributes may be so compelling as to justify such an approach. In some cases, the cost of rehabilitation or preservation is less than that of a new building and some imaginative examples of new uses are given.
