Site work on a 220-unit ministorage facility near Eugene, Ore., that includes 36 covered recreational vehicle spaces large enough to accommodate 40-foot motor homes or trailers is slated to begin in December, according to the Register-Guard.
South Eugene Storage LLC has applied to Lane County’s Land Management Division to build the facility on 4.5 acres.
The first phase of the project will include building about 22,000 square feet of self-storage space, which equates to about 220 units, and the 36 covered recreational vehicle spaces. Second-phase work would begin as market conditions dictate.
When complete, the facility will have about 45,000 square feet of self-storage space, covered storage for up to 70 RVs, and an outside storage for another 70 to 80 RVs.
Dan Montgomery, a real estate broker and principal at Eugene-based Western Properties, is teaming up with Eugene home builder and developer Tracy Mustoe to build the facility.
Montgomery said the southeast area of Eugene is underserved when it comes to self-storage space, and he and Mustoe want to fill that void.
“We know there are a lot of RV owners in that area who can’t store their RVs at their homes,” Montgomery said. “We’re going to offer electrical hook-ups so the motor homes can remain heated,” he said. “We’ll also have a dump station for RVs.”
