Get Space Opens Newest Facility in NE Portland in Nearly 20 Years

Starting off with a bang, Get Space celebrates the opening of its facility at Portland and Broadway (PBWY). This location is the newest facility to serve Northeast Portland in almost two decades! The multi-level adaptive reuse offers over 500 units throughout 64,800 sf to serve the needs of Roseway, Madison South, Hollywood, Montavilla, and Laurelhurst neighbors. 

During construction, PBWY was decorated with colorful graffiti. While the art was later removed, it foreshadowed the colorful future of this site, both literally and figuratively. The bold blue and green color palette of the facility is sure to catch the eye of commuters on I-84, and the company is splashing color at the self storage industry in general. According to Ben Bradley, Co-Founder and Partner, "We make cool, imaginative buildings that will be fun to look at. The odds and ends inside each unit are unique and storied, so why can't our facilities be as well?!"

The project will be turned over to Extra Space Storage for management. This collaboration has a fascinating history, as the previously completed Get Space locations in Hillsboro, Oregon, (H15 & H73) are both successfully managed by Extra Space.

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.

Even in Randomness, We Prefer Mathematically-Generated

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.

Get Space Begins Construction on Second Portland, OR, Self Storage

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.
