Urban Storage in Omaha, Neb., now under new ownership, has undergone a transformation and re-opened as The Storage Loft. The facility is the first of several businesses that will be operating out of the building at 1215 Leavenworth St.
New owner Tony Regier, an Omaha native and businessman who purchased the property in September, led the renovation of the 36,000-square-foot property on the corner of Leavenworth and 13th streets. “This building has an incredible story and history. We wanted to restore the building to its old glory while implementing the right businesses and even the right technology to bring it into the future of what Omaha is becoming. Self-storage is a huge need here, and we want to show the community how well that can be done,” Regier said.
The Storage Loft features climate-controlled wine storage, security cameras, an alarm system and individual unit locks. “People need to feel good about where their possessions are stored,” Regier said. “We want to be the place that they think of first when they need self-storage, and we want to support the needs of downtown Omaha as more people move this direction.”
The facility also offers modular storage that allows tenants to adapt their storage-space size as their needs change. “Modularized storage is the next evolution of storage,” Regier said. “Not only do people’s space needs change, they also need the ability to easily get in and out of their units. Modular storage gives them multiple points of access.”
The Storage Loft serves storage customers in Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Omaha, Papillion and Ralston, Neb., as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.
