Vacant big-box stores are enticing to many self-storage owners, developers and investors who seek a “blank canvas” for conversion projects. These large structures are typically well-situated in established retail and residential corridors, offering an immediate customer base; plus, city officials are often in favor of projects that turn empty, rundown buildings into thriving businesses.

Watch the incredible process of retail turned storage in this time-lapse video.
