Sponsored by Businesswire

Storage Star announced today that a brand new, state-of-the-art, smart
technology self-storage facility, powered by 100% renewable energy, is
set to break ground on Friday, May 10, 2019. The 10:00 a.m.
groundbreaking will take place at the new site at 300 Devlin Rd. in
Napa, launching the region’s first new storage facility in 20 years.

The new Storage Star facility – owned by Sacramento and Napa-based
FollettUSA / Storage Star, constructed by Roseville-based Thomastown
Builders, and conveniently located next to the Napa Regional Airport –
is set to be the North Bay’s most high-tech and secure self-storage
facility with the latest smart technology advancements, making it the
premier storage offering in the North Bay.

With features unrivaled in the Napa market such as unit monitoring and
unlocking from your smartphone, 24/7 access, climate-control and
top-grade surveillance, Storage Star’s new facility looks to improve the
storage offering in a growing region.

Matt Garibaldi, President of FollettUSA and Storage Star said, “Napa
Valley is a vibrant, growing community that deserves modern, high
quality self-storage at a reasonable price. Our new facility – Storage
Star Napa Airport – will provide the most technologically advanced
security features available in the market today. When combined with our
solar installation, we believe our new facility provides an excellent
example of quality and stewardship that new real estate developments
should bring to the Valley. We are fortunate to partner with such a
talented construction company Thomastown Builders, who has led the
planning and development of this world class project.”

In addition to making a commitment to security and convenience, Storage
Star has partnered with Marin Clean Energy to provide 100% clean solar
power from a rooftop, nearly 1-megawatt, solar installation.

With the continued construction of apartments and homes in the Napa and
American Canyon area, Storage Star is meeting the increased demand for
self-storage in a growing market. The facility is scheduled to break
ground on May 10, 2019 and open July 1, 2020 with 618 state-of-the-art
units providing ideal secure space for small businesses, families, and
the community.

Storage Star’s new Napa location will be the region’s top storage option
for customers of any need with units ranging in size from 25ft2
to 900ft2 offered at competitive rates.
