Self storage is not necessarily the most exciting industry. However, every now and again, a business comes along with such a unique concept that others in the self storage industry cannot help but take notice. Treasure Island Self Storage is one such company. Located in Brooklyn, New York, the newly opened self storage facility will offer art studio space to a working artists in the area. This new site marks the 10th self storage location in the New York-New Jersey area for Treasure Island president, James Coakley.
The self storage facility provides studio space and a variety of amenities to about 150 artists. These amenities include a ceramics area, spray room and art gallery. In addition to those amenities, there are carts, slop sinks and scaffolding equipment for artists to use as well.
The company’s official grand opening will take place on May 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with refreshments and giveaways. There will be refreshments and prizes for those in attendance. Treasure Island Storage is also giving away a free month’s rent to new customers. This is the perfect opportunity to land a good deal on self storage, especially if you are new to the whole concept.
The 84, 00 square foot building that houses the new self storage facility was purchased in 2012 from the U.S. Postal Service for $6.55 million. Prior to being used for self storage, the property served as a mail-sorting facility for more than 30 years.
Treasure Island doesn’t just offer storage options for artists, it also caters to the general public. There is household, commercial, boat, car and wine storage. With existing facilities in seven cities in New Jersey and three in New York, the company is anticipating opening another in Harlem later this year.
