Your Blueprint to Success with Concept Plans & Site Plan Considerations

By Garrett Byrd

Storage Authority is the only self-storage franchise.

Investing in a self-storage facility can produce a healthy six-figure residual income along with building an amazing retirement nest egg. But, navigating the complexities of development can be daunting. That's where Storage Authority comes in, offering a franchise opportunity that streamlines the process, reduces your risk, and maximizes your chances of success.

At Storage Authority, we understand that the early stages of development are critical. That's why we provide comprehensive support and guidance every step of the way. Below are just a couple of examples of the hundreds of ways we guide and support our owners.

1. Concept Plan & Early Design Review Expertise:

During the initial stages, it's crucial to craft a concept layout plan in collaboration with your civil engineer and architect. This plan will undergo review by you, the Storage Authority team, and subsequently by the City.

Key considerations in our concept plans include:

  • Determining the ideal mix of climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units.

  • Optimizing building widths for cost efficiency and increased square footage.

  • Addressing stormwater management requirements and impervious coverage limits.

  • Ensuring compliance with zoning regulations, parking requirements, and snow stockpiling needs.

  • Incorporating fire safety measures such as sprinklers or firewalls into the design.

2. Site Plan Considerations for a Welcoming Environment:

We recognize the importance of creating a welcoming environment for customers. Our franchise model emphasizes meticulous site planning and thoughtful landscaping to enhance curb appeal and community integration.

Highlights of our site plan considerations include:

  • Investing in attractive landscaping features, such as flower gardens and lighted trees, to create a positive first impression.

  • Balancing cost-effectiveness with aesthetics by incorporating decorative fencing along street frontages.

  • Taking into account residential neighbors in layout and landscaping decisions to foster positive relationships within the community.

Choosing to become a Storage Authority franchise owner means gaining access to a wealth of expertise and resources tailored to the unique challenges of self-storage development. From concept planning to site design, our franchise model prioritizes efficiency, compliance, and community engagement.
