OLD FOURTH WARD — A Midtown-based self-storage company with locations in Alabama and metro Atlanta, has opened its first in-town outlet on the Edgewood Avenue corridor.
The Storage Neighbor, which has 11 other locations, took over the former A.C. White Transfer & Storage Co. at 660 Edgewood Ave., near the Inman Park neighborhood boundary.
"The supply of self-storage in Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward is under-supplied, but what attracted us to the location was the opportunity to participate in the adaptive re-use of an abandoned building and take part in the revitalization of the Edgewood corridor," Shelby Brennan, the company's marketing director, told East Atlanta Patch.
"We are excited to be a part of the community and look forward to the opportunity to support various neighborhood initiatives that benefit the surrounding area."
As it stands now, the company has completed the first phase of the project.
When the second phase is completed — projected for the early part of this year — the building will have 52,961 square feet of climate-controlled self-storage space.
It also will have another 800 square feet of retail space that the company is looking to rent to a non-profit, retailer or other type of business, Brennan said.
