Silver Creek Self Storage Construction in Full Swing
Chuck Toeniskoetter is bullish on self storage. During the last recession, he notes, when commercial properties like office space and industrial buildings were negatively impacted, the sector that successfully weathered the storm was self storage. That’s one of the reasons the founder and current Board Chair of the Toeniskoetter family of companies is so excited about Silver Creek Self Storage, the firm’s newest venture. The new facility is currently under construction and will feature two multi-story buildings with 107,000 square feet of net leasable space, 1,086 climate-controlled units, 32 drive-up units, and three elevators. Set in a prime location in South San Jose, the solar-powered, state-of-the-art complex will be the crown jewel in the company’s successful self-storage portfolio.
The location on Silver Creek Valley Road is certainly an advantage. Set in a population center with strong income levels, the site has excellent visibility on a heavily trafficked thoroughfare with easy access to highways 85 and 101. The multi-story facility makes the most of the space available, allowing more units per acre than a typical single-story complex.
The facility itself was designed with both convenience and security in mind. Clients will find sensored LED lighting throughout, meaning no dark hallways, and an intercom system will connect them with the office at a moment’s notice. The majority of the units will be climate-controlled to ensure a steady temperature between 55 and 75 degrees. Customers can also rest assured that their goods will be protected, with high-security cameras strategically positioned throughout the facility, and door alarms coded to individuals, providing real-time information on who accesses a unit and when.
A granite monument, flying the MIA flag, will also be installed honoring San Jose servicemembers who gave their lives in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Silver Creek Self Storage will join two other successful Toeniskoetter self-storage properties: Cochrane Road Self Storage, completed in 1987 and developed in three phases, and was recently named “Best Self Storage in Morgan Hill” for the fifth year in a row; and Little Orchard Self Storage in San Jose, completed in 2017. Both facilities maintain 5-star Yelp and 4.9-star Google approval ratings. Like the others, Silver Creek is being built by Toeniskoetter Construction to ensure quality.
“We were looking to build on the success of the Cochrane Road and Little Orchard self-storage businesses,” says Chuck. “Our dream was to build a locally owned and operated, community-oriented, multi-story facility in a great location, and that’s what we have in Silver Creek.”
