Chris Bornhoft, a commercial real estate broker, and his wife, Marianne, who is a realtor and broker at Windermere Manito, will break ground in April for Garage Lodge, a 23-unit luxury storage condominium complex at 1551 S. Deer Heights Road on the West Plains in the Spokane, WA area. Owners will be able to customize the condos for a warehouse, shop or other uses. The walls will be 18 feet high, enabling space for a mezzanine or loft.
The lodge will be gated, and amenities will include a clubhouse with a kitchen, bathrooms, conference room, large television, mailboxes, business center and patio. The condos will come in four sizes, with prices starting at $149,000 for a 750-square-foot unit, up to $279,000 for a 1,400-square-foot premium unit.
“Most everyone buying a unit is paying cash for them,” Bornhoft said. “What’s driving demand is you have this incredible amount of cash sitting on the sidelines for investing – whether they’ve sold a house and are coming in with money or are people who like to invest in ownership.”
Bornhoft said he may build another 33 storage condo units on a site he owns east of Garage Lodge.

A developer seeks to build self-storage units on the site of a burned-down hotel in Galesburg, IL. Ty Johnson of New Bedford proposes to buy the property and put up mini storage buildings, and has filed a special-use request, which will go before the Planning & Zoning Commission on April 12. The Development Review Committee members reviewed the request on March 23 and recommended approval. A fire burned down the Econo Inn motel at the site on June 2009; the building was demolished in 2010 and has been vacant since then. Johnson also plans to build a facility at 962 E. Main St., and said the building will be used for storage units and construction rentals, such as boom lifts and skid rentals. The site will have both indoor and outdoor storage.
