The old buildings are now being seen as art treasures; they have intrinsic values and are reminders of a city’s culture and complexity. One of the ways of keeping the old buildings is by adaptive reusing them to contemporary uses. Adaptive reuse has been successfully applied to many types of buildings. The adaptive reuse of historic buildings is considered as central importance to comprehensive state strategy and sustainable development in nations. Through the built heritage adaptive re-use development, countries can respect and conserve the prominence of the historic buildings meanwhile adding economic value both for the current and the future. This paper proposes preservation and reusing project for one of a historic sports facility in Sporting club, one of the most important clubs in Alexandria, Egypt. The historic structure was part of the ancient city. This paper stresses that the practice of using the old buildings can save them from being replaced by new buildings. This practice also helps to preserve the identity of a place. The paper involved literature review of adaptive reuse, international conservation examples, and principles. Finally, we can learn from the international experiences of other countries to present a proposed principles of well adaptive reuse through the Case study
