Self-storage buildings have proven to be one of the surest bets in real estate over the last half century. Why?
For one, the housing market is hot and people are moving. And more often than not the period between the sale of a house and the buying of another doesn’t perfectly align so people need a place to store furniture and other belongings in the interim.
Also, in this era of downsizing and decluttering, people often want a place to save keepsakes and furnishings for family members to enjoy at a later date.
Citadel Self Storage, with its industry-best features and exceptional customer service, has revolutionized the concept of storage. The high-end facility in St. Matthews offers temperature-controlled units in a variety of sizes as well as a fully-dedicated wine storage room with lockers that can fit anywhere from one case to 90 cases of wine. This room is maintained at 55 degrees with 55-60% humidity year-round. Citadel also sells wine transit boxes for their customers’ convenience.
According to Scott Harper, Master Sommelier and co-owner of Bristol Bar & Grille and Cuvée Wine Table, who also designed Citadel’s wine storage parameters, “Having an appropriate place to store your wine is paramount. What you need is a place that will remain cool, with good humidity, no direct light, no vibrations or off odors and the ability to keep the bottles resting on their sides.”
Wine ages best when the temperature and setting remain constant, according to Harper. “Large swings in temperatures, as well as direct light and vibrations, can harm wine — it will mature faster causing it to lose its delicate qualities.” He also explained that off odors can seep into wine, affecting its quality.
Citadel Self Storage, a 100,000-square-foot, three-story facility, is unique to Louisville as it has 100% indoor temperature control, which is ideal for any items that need to be stored in a regulated environment, whether that be furniture, wine, art, etc.
The facility is currently being finished and will have 990 units of various sizes available for short- or long-term rentals. It offers a designated, covered loading and unloading zone and large hand carts for easy transport of items. Also included are individual unit security, with each having its own PIN number for access tied to an alarm, and 24-hour HD security monitoring.
“The self storage industry has taken off, and we are so excited to bring our concept to Louisville,” said Allen Schubert, the developer of the property. “This unique and interesting facility takes the trend to a whole new level.”
Schubert has also recently opened similar properties in Nashville, TN and Cincinnati, OH.
Want to take a look at what this storage facility has to offer? On Thursday, June 28, at 5:30 PM Citadel Self Storage will host a grand opening networking event at the new facility located at 1403 Browns Lane in St. Matthews.
The event, open to the public, will feature a wine tasting with Scott Harper.
