It will have 63,000 rentable square feet of space in 637 indoor units
July 23, 2017: Based in Tucson, Ariz., National Self Storage (NSS) recently broke ground on a new property in Marana, Ariz.
According to a press release, the development will be the first multi-story, climate-controlled storage facility in Dove Mountain, a master-planned community about 40 minutes from Tucson.
The facility’s design will reflect the history of the area, the release stated. Features will include a 45-foot stone tower inspired by the Kiva Room at the Golf Club at Dove Mountain and a 28-foot blade sign similar to that of the historic Fox Theater in Tucson.
“This is a nice neighborhood, and we want to build a facility to match. This is a very underserved market, so we’re excited to get this development going,” said Travis Morrow, president. “I actually live about 400 yards from the site, so I should be able to see my house from the third floor when it’s finished.”
The facility’s front office will deviate from industry tradition by lacking a service counter. Instead, the facility will employ rental stations with handheld tablet kiosks. “These rental stations and tablets will allow the renter to have as much or as little contact with the manager as they please,” Morrow said. “The rental stations will also have features that give the managers more tools to complete the sale, including interactive facility maps, unit-size-guide videos and live competitor pricing.”
