Greenbox Self Storage opened its third facility in Denver this week, across from Coors Field. The facility is comprised of 135,000 square feet of rentable storage space in 651 units. In keeping with the company’s environmental-design philosophy, the two-story building was constructed with energy-efficient insulation, recycled materials, beetle-kill wood and other sustainable features such as solar power.
The structure includes 296 solar panels, which are projected to produce more than 120,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year. That output will cover approximately 96 percent of the building’s needs, company officials said in a press release.
“We are thrilled to be opening our third location and expanding into new areas of the city,” said company founder Bahman Shafa. “The residential population of downtown Denver is expected to grow by 18 percent over the next five years, and Greenbox is the ideal sustainable storage option for this growing population.”
The facility at 2424 Delgany St. has storage space ranging from units as small as 12.5 square feet to warehouse space as large as 15,000 square feet. It is central to numerous downtown neighborhoods, including LoDo, Ballpark, Highlands, Prospect, RiNo and Union Station, officials said. It is also the only Greenbox location with a business center and conference room available to customers. Workshop space is also available for rent.
In addition, the Delgany location has three freight-capacity elevators and loading docks big enough to accommodate 18-wheelers. Other amenities include computerized keypad access, climate-controlled units, energy-efficient LED lighting, video surveillance and free use of moving trucks.
Greenbox opened its first facility in January in Denver’s River North district. That facility is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified from the U.S. Green Building Council, company officials said. Its second facility opened in August in the South Broadway area.
