West Coast Self-Storage of Padden Parkway opened this month at the intersection of Padden Parkway and Andresen Road in Vancouver, Wash.
Designed by Magellan Architects, the project features three buildings encompassing 61,100 net rentable square feet with 626 units, 550 of which offer heating. The facility also has 24-hour recorded surveillance, commercial delivery acceptance, and a covered drive aisle with an elevator loading area.
This storage center is unlike any in the Vancouver area, featuring a covered drive aisle such that a majority of the customers can access their units while protected from the elements. This is a great amenity given the rainy climate in the Pacific Northwest, said Jim McNamee, president of West Coast Self-Storage Group, which owns the facility along with its capital partner, Catalyst Storage Investors.
The project was constructed by PacDev Inc., a specialist in self-storage design-build. The company is headquartered in Santa Rosa, Calif.
West Coast Self-Storage Group is a management and investment company in the self-storage asset class. Founded in 2006, the company currently operates 20 self-storage facilities and is expanding its operating and investing activity in all major markets in California, Oregon and Washington.
