Empire Boat & RV Storage opened a $7 million covered storage facility in Healdsburg, Calif., for owners of boats, motorhomes and travel trailers. The 115-acre facility has space for about 200 boats and as many RVs. The carport-style metal structures, built by Baja Construction Co. of Martinez, Calif., have a 14-foot clear height.
In addition to fencing around the storage area, cameras and fire sprinklers, the facility offers renters the option of installing motion sensors in their craft or vehicles that will be monitored by the onsite manager and armed automatically when the owner leaves.
Empire Mini Storage, owned by real estate developer Jim Menconi, has additional locations in California, including Middletown, Novato, Cloverdale and Forestville. For more information, visit www.empireministorage.com.
