Self storage design has come a long way from the metal sheds of decades ago to the impressive styling of the new age multi-story facilities. And our new Portland & Division (PDIV) project exemplifies it!
Get ready southeast Portland, better storage is coming!
We've always been fascinated by what's possible through the use and manipulation of data through mathematical means, even when it comes to our building materials.
In order to position our Portland & Columbia (PCOL) project appropriately along Columbia Boulevard's strikingly diverse character, we designed a shapely simple facility with the anticipation of the giving the building skin extra life.
Here's a sneak peak:
In order the generate the random pattern, we again enlisted an algorithm. Curious what it looks like? See below.
And zoomed in over the particular parameters.
Sounds neat right?! Well, early next Spring 2017 we'll start to see the actual materials being installed. For now, we'll have to imagine with the samples we were given.
We always knew that we liked our colors, but now we think we might need to change our color name from "GS Green" to "GS Praying Mantis Green" because of this guy's love for that big green wall. #greenongreen
You might have driven down I-84 in Portland without ever noticing this building. But now, once you've spotted it, it's hard not to see it.
Look for our newest location, Portland & Broadway, opening August 2016!
Construction has begun--not a moment too soon--on Get Space's Portland & Columbia site. Portland & Columbia (lovingly known as PCOL) is one of Get Space's largest projects to date, weighing in at just over 100,000 square feet of ground-up development. A project of this scale requires lots of planning and design work before soil is ever turned, as evidenced by the huge stacks of permit drawings sent to the city in late 2015 for routine review. Happily, progress on Get Space PCOL has continued at a quick clip, thanks in part to the contributions of contractor Perlo Construction.
Portland & Columbia is located in the heart of industrial northeast Portland, next door to Portland International Airport. This location is easy to access from both I-5 and I-205, which is convenient for neighbors throughout Alberta, Maywood Park, Beaumont - Wilshire, Piedmont, and Alameda. The facility is slated to open in late 2016.

Press Release—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Get Space believes that self storage doesn't have to be complicated. While self storage is inherently built around utility, Get Space mixes it with a little simplicity and beauty to achieve amazing results. Focused in the Pacific Northwest initially, Get Space is developing multiple new facilities with a systematic development approach not seen in self storage development before.

Victory is ours! We have conquered the permit department and come out with 58.7 pounds of permitted construction drawings!
Now let's go move some dirt! #momentofvictory
If you had to, you could build an 80,800 square foot storage facility with this beast bundle! As nice as that all sounds, if only we could convince the municipality to accept digital submissions, then we'd really be on our way! #bundledplans #shouldhavewrappedthem
We received this cool drawing from our design team that made us look twice. What could this totally psychedelic image possibly be?
- The new wallpaper for Get Space HQ
- A map of active volcanoes near our building sites (#PNWlyfe)
- A diagram of structural loads at Portland and York
Who knew a structural diagram could be so colorful and fun?
