Burlington Self Storage, which operates four facilities in the Northeast, recently opened its fifth property in Derry, N.H. The company converted an existing manufacturing building into a single-story, drive-in self-storage facility.
The building had existing mezzanine, which was extended to create an additional 30,000 square feet of storage space, according to a press release. After the loss of the interior driveway and hallways, the total rentable square footage of the facility is 53,000 square feet.
“When I saw the building, I immediately knew we could covert this to drive-in self-storage,” said company president Chris Capozzoli. “This has not been seen in this area. You drive in the building and out of the weather. The response has been tremendous.”
The property offers direct-access units off the drive along with first- and second-floor units, which can be accessed with lifts. The office includes a fireplace, customer seating, and a coffee and cookie bar. Additional amenities include Penske truck rental, video cameras, a conference room, vehicle storage, and packing and moving supplies.
