Richland Self Storage opened on Aug. 1 at 3809 Richland Ave. in Aiken, S.C. The property includes more than 500 units of varying sizes, with more than half being climate-controlled, according to a company press release.
Brad Brodie, the general contractor for the development, said the storage company is ramping up to be the “premier” place for self-storage in the area. The new facility has several access points including two from Richland Avenue and one at the rear access road. “Trucks and large trailers have easy entry and maneuverability once inside,” Brodie said.
The facility has been designed to incorporate features including digital video monitoring, computerized security, lighted units and background music, according to the release. Customers can access the property 24/7 via automatic gates with electronic keypads.
“Richland Self Storage is by far the most advanced facility of its kind in the area,” Brodie told the source. “Every aspect of the design paid particular attention to the comfort, convenience and safety of customers.”
Brodie and marketing specialist Pete Palmere told the source their research indicated there was a demand for storage in the Aiken market. According to their numbers, the industry has grown by 45 percent since 2007.
In addition to traditional self-storage, the facility will provide records storage for businesses. It will also aim to attract professional tenants such as pharmaceutical reps.
