Developers Casey Brock and Tony Berry hope to create something special – “a modern version of yesterday’s warehouse” – as construction begins on its new self-storage facility at 1861 Ashley River Road in Charleston, SC. It will have 675 climate- and humidity-controlled units, and 96,000 square feet, with CubeSmart as manager.

“Our objective was to give a contemporary treatment to the architecture with form and materials,” said Lyudmila Sobchuk, principal architect. “The idea is to integrate this building into its surroundings, much as warehouses have done for decades.”

The developers made it a joint venture with RADCO Ventures of Atlanta, GA. SGB NarmourWright Design handled the project design.

This modern storage facility is currently under construction in Charleston, SC.
