Ribbon-Cutting event Nov 10, co-hosted by Omni Capital Management and Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce
PHOENIX – October 27, 2016 – Phoenix-based Omni Capital Management LLC is adding a state-of-the-art self-storage facility to the vibrant growth and convenient lifestyle in downtown Phoenix. This contemporary-designed buildout demonstrates the demand for supporting businesses and services that simplify the challenges of downtown living, making it an attractive community for businesses and residents to relocate and thrive. The building, just east of Chase Field and formerly Goodman’s Furniture Warehouse, is the project of Scott Fey and Fritz Beesemyer, principals and partners of Omni Capital Management LLC. The property will be professionally managed by CubeSmart, a leading operator of self-storage facilities in the United States.
A ribbon-cutting celebration, hosted by Omni and the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, will take place, Thursday, November 10, 4-7 p.m., where invited guests include Chamber members, investors, elected officials, surrounding business owners, managers and owners of downtown apartments and condominiums, media, and employees from the City of Phoenix who have been involved with the project.
CubeSmart is located just east of Chase Field at 841 E. Jefferson Street, Phoenix, AZ.
“Downtown growth has experienced many stops and starts, but trends all across the country indicate that baby boomers and millennials want a lifestyle of convenience that can only be found through urban living,” said Scott Fey, co-principal and partner, Omni Capital Management LLC. “There is unprecedented growth of new apartments, condos and businesses downtown. Now is the time for supporting businesses to come on board to provide the logistical solutions to sustain that growth.
Fey added “Our storage facility is designed to give our Customers a clean and convenient third closet, spare garage, or extra storage room that urban dwellers and growing businesses need. The facility is equipped with multiple security features, including cameras, 24-hour DVR recording, and keypad access. With the combination of our state-of-the-art facility features and the professional assistance of CubeSmart’s onsite managers, we aim to make our Customers’ storage experience enjoyable and stress free.”
Omni took deliberate measures to build a structure to be aesthetically complementary to the artistic look of the downtown area. They hired well known architect, Tony Tang, who was the master planner on prestigious structures, including Scottsdale Fashion Square, Camelback Esplanade, and The Camby.
“I created the design so it would capture the attention of moving vehicles and light rail passengers,” said Mr. Tang. The new front is imposing and dynamic, using bright yellow and red architectural details. Mr. Tang added “Goodman’s is a well-known historic structure but we updated it to reflect the eclectic designs and vibrancy of Chase Field and the art district of Roosevelt Row. We have created a beautiful, inviting space for serving practical purposes.”
Storage units range from convenient 5’x5’ lockers for holiday decorations, athletic gear and business files, to the largest size unit of 10’x30’ for large furniture. A gated parking lot at the rear of the building has been created to store extra cars and recreational vehicles.
“We are pleased to provide management of this newly developed self-storage facility in downtown Phoenix,” said Guy Middlebrooks, vice president, Third Party Management. “It is well located and convenient to local residents and businesses needing climate -controlled, self-storage space.”
“It is great to welcome businesses like Omni’s CubeSmart self-storage facility on Jefferson St. to Downtown Phoenix,” said Jeff Durbin, senior business development executive with the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. “This kind of commitment to the city’s urban core keeps people moving here, businesses growing and Phoenix’s economy moving forward.”
