Last week Inside Self-Storage published a new online image gallery featuring the successful conversion of a 109-year-old Chicago building into a crown jewel of the Life Storage brand. Titled "A Remarkable Self-Storage Conversion: Life Storage Centers of River North, Chicago," the gallery demonstrates the transformation of the multi-story space and how the facility owner and builder circumvented development challenges. It can be viewed at www.insideselfstorage.com/galleries.
Life Storage River North opened in August. Situated on the corner of Ohio and Orleans streets, the new facility capitalizes on its downtown locale plus its proximity to the famous Ohio Street feeder ramp on the city’s west side.
The image gallery was sponsored by Janus International Corp., a manufacturer of self-storage doors and hallway systems, which supplied and installed the doors and hallway systems for the Life Storage building conversion.
