Update 11/10/17 – Breezy Hill Self Storage opened its doors on Nov. 1 in Graniteville. "We're ramping up to make it the premier place for self-storage in the [Central Savannah River Area]," Meldrum said.
6/20/17 – Construction is nearly complete on the new Breezy Hill Self Storage facility in Graniteville, S.C. Expected to open in mid-August, the property at 200 Bettis Academy Road will comprise 87,000 square feet of storage space in 550 units, half of which will be climate-controlled. It’ll also contain 21 outdoor vehicle-parking spaces, according to the source.
The facility is between the newly built Leavelle McCampbell Middle School and AllStar Tents & Events, a provider of party-rental products. It’s also near Interstate 20, a major thoroughfare traversing the state.
The storage facility will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Security features will include electronic keypads, perimeter fencing and video cameras. The units will lighted, and background music will be played throughout the property. The management team will also accept deliveries on customers’ behalf, the source reported.
“Breezy Hill Self Storage is the largest and, by far, the most advanced facility of its kind in the area,” said Brad Brodie, president of Storage Development Inc., the general contractor. “Every aspect of the design pays particular attention to the comfort, convenience and safety of customers. The facility has wide thoroughfares so that trucks and large trailers have easy entry and maneuverability once inside.”
In addition to targeting commercial and residential customers, the facility aims to attract businesses that need off-site archival storage and pharmaceutical companies that require a climate-controlled environment for their products, according to Chad Meldrum of WTCII Enterprises LLC, the facility owner. “We will deliver tremendous value to build the client base and establish a high level of customer satisfaction,” he added.
Pete Palmere is the construction superintendent on the project, the source reported.
