Herb Havins, president of The Havins Co. Inc., recently broke ground on Silverbell Self Storage at Sunset Ranch in Tucson, Ariz. The urban-renewal project at 2720 N. Silverbell Road was 10 years in the making, according to Havins, who also owns Ajo-Kinney Super Storage at 5175 W. Ajo Highway in Tucson.
The new facility will offer climate-controlled as well as traditional drive-up units and make use of several eco-friendly initiatives to create a lower carbon footprint, such as LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, native landscaping and a 21.5 kilowatt photovoltaic-solar system. Security measures will include keypad access, individually alarmed units and video cameras. The facility will also offer a retail store that sells moving and packing supplies, and a moving truck customers can use for free when renting a unit.
The Silverbell site received a commendation from the Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce, whose proclamation "carries with it 100 years of good fortune,” according to the source.
Havins is also president of Pima County Market Data Services, a member of the Appraisal Institute and a real estate broker in Arizona. He’s been a resident of Tucson for more than 30 years.
