Update 11/14/19 – Rosemurgy Properties and Sentry Self Storage completed construction on the partnership’s Hollywood facility, holding a grand-opening even on Nov. 7. The design by Kenneth Carlson Architects includes a two-story glass storefront. The property features covered parking and loading zones, multiple freight elevators, and zoned keycode access for customers, according to a press release.
“With the growth of the local area and the downsizing of both rental and for-sale living units that East Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale are experiencing, the need for storage space is increasing,” Rosemurgy said. “Sentry Self Storage-Hollywood is located in a prime location for these markets. As these areas continue to grow and businesses expand, commercial storage needs will continue to increase accordingly.”
“We were ecstatic to partner again with Rosemurgy Properties to bring this beautiful project to the city of Hollywood,” added Norman Schulman, CEO of Sentry. “We wanted to create a consumer-friendly, secure self-storage facility with all the modern conveniences that make it easy for customers to move and store their belongings, and that’s exactly what we built. The Carlson design team worked closely with us to create this modern and architecturally beautiful building in this growing Hollywood market.”
