Fresh Trends in Self-Storage: Facility Design and Building Showcase
Storage Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., Makes a Statement
Because of its high visibility and many residential neighborhoods, the city of Norman, Okla., imposes regulations above the norm for a self-storage facility. Buildings must be in a hip style with a minimum 3:12 slope, and no sheeted walls are allowed. It’s obvious the owner of this project wanted it to stand out, as is evident in the office.
The above and following photos of Storage Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., highlight phase 1. Construction began in late in 2010 and was complete in spring 2011. The facility was close to 75 percent occupied just six months after opening. The materials for phase 2 have been delivered and construction will begin this summer.
The above photo of the office building displays its gorgeous cedar siding and dormers and a colored, standing-seam metal roof. These combined make quite a statement to passersby.
