The first phase of a self-storage conversion project recently opened in Medford, Mass., a suburb north of Boston.
Phase I of the new Storage Bunker self-storage opened in February and consists of spaces ranging from 200 to 2,000 square feet. These large units are targeted at commercial tenants. Phase II, with units as small as 25 square feet and as large as 850 square feet, is scheduled to open in June. These units are designed to cater to residential and small-business tenants.
When finished, the facility will amass 50,000 square feet. Amenities will include climate-controlled units, computerized access, individual unit alarms, video surveillance and an onsite staff. In addition, the facility will rent office space ranging from 120 and 300 square feet.
The facility is located at 20 Sycamore Ave., about a half-mile from Interstate 93 and 4.5 miles north of downtown Boston. The Storage Bunker has two locations, with the original in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston.
