Two things I did notice though.
Several of these places appear from the pictures to be housed in what had once been large retail stores or strip shopping centers. Not a bad idea if stores are closing left and right in your area. Make the owner a low ball offer and divvy the place up into storage spots.


That's nothing!

When I worked in New Orleans in the mid-1990's, the office building glut was so bad that they converted the 10-story building across the street to self storage -- Italian marble floors, bronze fixtures, and all.
