Adaptive reuse is a way for commercial properties to find a new life, and they can be a win-win situation for developers and a community.

In spite of a very low unemployment rate nationally, the country was able to add 235,000 net new jobs in February, the 77th consecutive month of growth and the first consecutive print above 200,000 since last summer.
