NAPA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 8, 2019–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.
