PRWeb Newswire, January 6, 2014, New York, NY – Gotham Mini Storage, one of Manhattan’s newest storage facilities, has been named the 2013 Facility of the Year Conversion Winner by Mini-Storage Messenger Magazine, a trade publication for self-storage owners.
“This is such an honor for us, as we’re the first new storage development to open in Manhattan in 10 years,” says Steve Schwartz, co-owner of Gotham Mini Storage. “New York is not an easy market to break in to and this recognition is a wonderful affirmation for us.”
Co-owners Jack Guttman and Schwartz transformed part of a DHL service building into a 140,000-square-foot state-of-the-art mini-storage location, complete with amenities like fully climate-controlled units, free Wi-Fi access, use of a free move-in van and a coffee bar and lounge with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline.
Units available range from 4’x4’ lockers to 80’x20’ extra-large rooms – meaning there is a perfect size for everyone with storage needs, especially in a city where space is at such a premium.
“The average client using Gotham’s units for personal reasons don’t need a huge unit – they just need a little extra space,” says Schwartz, who, as co-owner of Broadway Storage with Guttman, oversees 40 other storage facilities. “What they’re looking for is simply an extension of their existing closet, a place to keep winter or summer clothes, that oversized item they can’t part with – things like that.”
With amenities like a coffee bar, lounge and free shuttle service that are not often found in a storage facility – and one that is located in Midtown Manhattan – Schwartz says that everyone who uses Gotham Mini Storage isn’t just storing off-season clothing and grandma’s hand-me-downs.
“Many of our clients run businesses from the facility, taking full advantage of our lounge and free Wi-Fi, which they have full access to as customers,” Schwartz says. “Of course, clients also use storage to keep important business-related information while moving offices or while in transition.”
Gotham Mini Storage is located at 501 10th Avenue, extending the entire block between 38th and 39th Streets. For more information, please visit www.gothamministorage.com or call 212- 931-5731.
