Self-Storage Around the World: Reflections of Non-U.S. Facilities on Six Continents
Self-Storage Blends With the Community in Chile and Panama
In Chile and Panama, there's an increase in mixed-use developments that include self-storage in business parks and shopping centers. Loq Storage Mini Bodegas (pictured) is in the real estate development Avenida Escazú, inhabiting the lower floor of the community parking garage. It also sports another feature permeating the Latin American industry: eco-friendly development. In Chile, for example, self-storage operators pledge that their design, construction and operation will be in accord with the preservation of the environment, focusing on energy efficiency, waste management and biodegradable products.
