Self-storage operator ezStorage Corp. will celebrate the grand opening of its new LEED-compliant facility in Elkridge, Md.

Self-storage operator ezStorage Corp. will celebrate the grand opening of its new LEED-compliant facility in Elkridge, Md. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place June 24 at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and others will be in attendance.
The Elkridge site is ezStorage’s second to be LEED certified. According to the U. S. Green Building Council, LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green-building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
"In 2008, ezStorage made the decision to design all newly-constructed facilities to meet the strict standards of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program," said ezStorage CEO Ken Hankin. "Our Charles Village facility, which opened in 2009, was our first LEED-certified building, and we're happy to say it is operating with amazing efficiency."
In addition to being LEED-compliant, the Elkridge facility is part of Howard County's Route 1 Corridor Revitalization, a project to help guide land development in that area.

Based in Columbia, Md., ezStorage operates more than 41,000 self-storage units throughout Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
