A former dairy plant has been converted into a 100,000-square-foot self-storage facility in Greensboro, N.C.
The facility, Gateway Storage Solutions, is owned by Market Street Storage LLC, a new venture between Gateway Holdings LLC and Return Holdings. The facility offers drive-up, climate-control units, boat/RV storage, and other amenities.
Gateway is on an 8.3 acre site originally developed in 1948 by Guilford Dairy and operated through 2001 by Flav-O-Rich Dairy. Only two of the three buildings were able to be converted into self-storage. However, more than 85 percent of the demolished building was recycled on site and in other area commercial projects, says Frank Hinman, President and CEO of Gateway Holdings. “Our goal was to rebuild in an environmentally friendly manner while providing the neighborhood and city with an aesthetically pleasing project.”
The two-story glass storefront faces West Market Street and includes landscaping to mimic an upscale office park. Landmark Builders of the Triad was the general contractor, with financing provided by High Point Bank. Four acres of the project were saved for future development.
