Community "fit" and good design driving aesthetic of new Charleston, SC storage facility, as developers seek to set a new standard.

Construction has commenced on a new, state-of-the-art storage facility in West Ashley. And while storage construction may not typically make news, there is noteworthy care being applied to this project.

Charlotte-based developers Casey Brock and Tony Berry have assembled a team of professionals to create a “modern version of yesterday’s warehouse,” in their new facility at 1861 Ashley River Road. The project is a joint venture with Atlanta-based RADCO Ventures.

Designed by the architectural firm SGA NarmourWright Design, the 96,000-square foot, climate-controlled building will channel the aesthetic of its urban setting. “Our objective was to give a contemporary treatment to the architecture with form and materials,” said principal architect, Lyudmila “Luda” Sobchuk, AIA. “The idea is to integrate this building into its surroundings, much as warehouses have done for decades.”

Featuring 675 climate- and humidity-controlled units ranging in size from 5 feet by 5 feet to 10 feet by 25 feet, the self-storage facility will have multiple elevators and covered parking for easy and protected access to each unit.

The project will also include approximately 2,200 square feet of commercial space fronting Ashley River Road to be leased for non-storage commercial uses.

The Charleston office of Stantec Engineering is providing civil design and landscape architecture services. Clayton Construction Company based in Spartanburg, S.C. is the project’s general contractor.

Pinnacle Bank is providing financing for the project. CubeSmart Self Storage, based in Malvern, Pa., has been chosen to manage the property with a projected Spring 2020 opening.
