August 8, 2017: EP Sobe Storage has opened its self-storage facility in the historic Flamingo/Lummus neighborhood of Miami Beach neighborhood, but under a different name than originally reported.
Sobe Wine & Self Storage includes three stories and 1,000 storage units in varying types, including traditional self-storage, temperature-controlled wine storage, covered parking and outdoor bicycle storage.
“We are incredibly excited to introduce a new level of wine and self-storage to South Beach. There is nothing like this on the beach. Residents and local business now have access to state-of-the-art wine [storage] and self-storage,” said David Blum, president of Better Management Systems LLC (BMS), the firm managing the property. Blum and his son, Eric Blum, also acted as consultants during the project’s development, according to a press release.
The wine-storage area comprises more than 140 units in varying sizes, with an option for tenant customization. The area features a biometric security entrance, redundant refrigeration systems and a backup generator. Kept at 55 degrees and 70 percent humidity, it includes an alarm to notify staff in the event of a climate change. Carts are available to help renters transport their collections.
