Our 22nd Street self storage location in Norfolk, Virginia is steeped in history. It was originally built more than 100 years ago as a tobacco warehouse. It's location, adjacent to the Norfolk and Western Railroad, was ideal. Later in it's life, it served as a peanut warehouse. As so often it happens, the building passed from owner to owner and fell on hard times. In 1985, it was purchased, renovated and converted into Norfolk's first multi-story self storage facility with more than 320 rooms to serve the downtown Norfolk area. This self storage facility, a multi-story all internal building, has unique features not found in other-run-of-the-mill storage facilities. Security is higher here because the building is completely locked up at night. No one can jump the fence and break into your unit. We have two convenient loading docks with plenty of flat bed transfer carts and a freight elevator to easily get your goods to the second and third floors. The entire building is also protected by a fire suppression system for added safety. Our storage managers are ready to help you select the right storage space for your needs. They can give you tips on the best ways to pack your goods for safety and to get the most into the smallest space. They can counsel you on how to protect your property and if we do not have the space you need we can recommend a nearby facility to help you out..
