Solar Powered Storage Building in Portland


Only in Portland would our leftover crap get treated so well, in a solar powered, LEED platinum storage building! Expect growth in storage facilities as we migrate to smaller spaces and can't part with grandma's treasures, but here it is absolutely coddled with 100,000 square feet of solar panels, water taxi access, rainwater collection, fish and wildlife habitat restoration along the seawall, and a small footprint (relative to regular storage buildings which are usually bland, low, cheap structures). Waterfront site, great views; their big problem is going to be keeping people from renting a 10x20 and moving in.
