New public storage options open in Southeast
Along with the construction of many new apartment buildings in Inner Southeast neighborhoods, new self-storage facilities are being built.
Development plans for the former 7-Dees Plant Nursery at S.E. 61st at Powell Boulevard include high-end homes to the north – plus a storage area along the Powell side of the acreage. "Extra Space Storage" is reportedly developing that storage facility. In addition, three new self-storage facilities have recently opened in the Ardenwald, Brooklyn, and Hosford-Abernethy neighborhoods.
"Extra Space Storage", with its bright green company colors, is making inroads locally. A huge new four-story facility opened in July at 685 S.E. Division Place, adjacent to the Union Pacific and MAX tracks. They offer 24-hour security and keypad access to units ranging from 5' x 5' to 10' x 30' in size. As do many established storage businesses, they also sell bubble wrap, locks, packing tape, boxes, and protection kits for dishware and furniture. Call them at 1-877/532-7509 for information.
"Extra Space Storage" also opened a new facility at 4403 S.E. Johnson Creek Boulevard in Ardenwald. They offer elevator access to three stories of heated indoor units ranging from 3' x 5' to 20' x 20' in size, with the first month's rent free, in a current promotion. Security offered includes round-the-clock electronic gate access, and an on-site manager. Their information number is 1-866/467-4709.
"West Coast Self-Storage" in Brooklyn, a three-story facility at S.E. 17th Avenue and McLoughlin Boulevard, built on the former site of a "Battery Factory" store, offers a variety of temperature-controlled units ranging from 5' x 5' to 10' x 30' in size. Contractor Lorentz Bruun completed the project in December. They're open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and offer free use of moving carts and dollies. They also rent moving trucks to their customers. West Coast's rental office is at 4970 S.E. 16th Avenue. Phone them at 503/239-5555 for information.
