NorthPoint Development opened a new Beyond Self Storage facility last month in Maplewood, Minn. It’s the fourth project from the firm since it launched its multi-facility development initiative in February 2016. The company also operates two Beyond Self Storage facilities in Chesterfield and McCausland, Mo., and Joco Self Storage in Overland Park, Kan.
The property at 1315 Cope Ave. E. took a year to build. It comprises more than 100,000 square feet of drive-through storage space as well as a business/conference center that includes workstations, a printer and copier, and Wi-Fi. It also features access-controlled entry, a self-serve kiosk, motion-detection lighting, video cameras, and a retail store that sells moving and packing supplies. Customers can make online reservations.
“We are really excited to open the first of multiple projects we have planned for the Minneapolis area,” said Ben Hagedorn, director of operations. “There are no facilities currently offering the same kind of modern amenities in the surrounding area, and Beyond Self Storage will be one of the only drive-through facilities with 100 percent climate control to serve residents and businesses.”
NorthPoint has several self-storage projects under development or construction in Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. Additional properties are under contract in other markets, the release stated.
Based in Riverside, Mo., and founded in 2012, NorthPoint is a development, management and leasing firm that’s principally focused on the industrial, multi-family, senior living and self-storage markets in the Central United States. The company has $2.1 billion in raised capital and operates 28 million square feet of industrial properties, thousands of multi-family apartment units, and numerous developed or managed senior-living communities.
