FWIW, another example is the college I went to.  At the end of World War II the
university built a bunch of "temporary" housing to handle all the people going
to college on the GI Bill.  They tore down the last of that housing in the
mid-1980s, about forty years later.  The "temporary" housing was used as
married student housing that whole time.
