All Storage, which operates 42 self-storage facilities in Oklahoma and Texas, has opened a new location in Plano, Texas, that features a 40-foot-tall “cardboard box” on the exterior. The architectural element at 500 Talbert Drive houses the facility office. It was created to look like a corrugated cardboard with open flaps, an up-arrow marking and the words “Do not stack” and “Fragile.”
All Storage was granted a Class 39 trademark for the building design last year. The Plano facility is the fourth of its kind in the metroplex to feature it. Plans for six similarly designed properties are underway in Aledo, Texas, according to a press release.
“We think storage can be easy and fun,” said CEO Jay Schuminsky. “I think our customers recognize that we want to make their change-of-life situations that much better.”
All Storage operates two facilities in Oklahoma and 16 in Texas. Many of the properties feature the company’s “EZ drive-thru” feature, which allows tenants to drive their vehicles directly into the facility for loading and unloading.
