Storage Post Self Storage recently completed interior and exterior renovations to a multi-story facility in New Rochelle, N.Y. The project included structural changes to the office and entrance areas, new paint and signage. The structure is nearly 100 years old and includes 720 units in 65,000 square feet.
The office was enlarged and redesigned to increase space for rental transactions and retailing packing supplies. New restrooms were installed on the main floor with updated fixtures and tiles. A large, glass front door was installed to replace a smaller entryway, and all units were converted to be climate-controlled.
Exterior improvements also include new lighting to illuminate the building's architectural features. The new signs posted throughout the location feature the company’s green-and-yellow brand colors.
"This is a key Storage Post facility, especially with its positioning and location. With a taller building, we knew we had to make the paint color and signs pop,” said Bill Marsh, vice president of real estate. “Looking at the before pictures, we believe that the new color palette has dramatically changed the store."
The project is part of a comprehensive renovation strategy the company started last year to update facilities in its portfolio. Company officials said they expect increased consumer interest and occupancy growth as a result of the improvements.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Storage Post has more than 20 locations throughout Georgia, Louisiana, New Jersey and New York. The company is actively pursuing growth opportunities through the acquisition, redevelopment and management of existing self-storage properties. The company targets both single-property and portfolio transactions.
