As part of the planning process for Premier Garage Condos, our sales manager, Don Nault took a road trip. He spent days on the road looking into a variety of condominium projects throughout Alberta, Idaho, Washington and BC.
Talking to owners, managers and sales people Don learned what types of developments were having success and which ones were struggling.
Learning from other projects, he was able to bring back information that would help form Premier Garage Condos into a top of the line development.
Some of the garage condo projects he visited included:
My Space in Sylvan Lake - The first phase of this project hosts 44 bays ranging in sizes from 20’ x 48’ to 24’ x 48’ with 18 foot ceilings. This development has proven to be very popular and is located in a great area. They are currently starting work on their second phase.
GarageTown USA – Garage Town has three locations in the Idaho area and is a franchise with locations in Alaska, Arizona, BC, Colorado, Texas and Washington. Each of the three locations have something a little different to offer in the way of layout and location.
The Dens in Calgary - bills itself as “Your Luxury Garage Community” and has already completed their second phase. Like Premier Garage Condos, they include a gated and secure community with completely customizable units, an owner’s clubhouse and a paved site.
Storage Town is the name of the condo development in Lethbridge. It has 41 condo bays that range in size from an extra large single garage to an oversize shop. This project is currently almost 50% sold.
Boys with Toys Storage in Sicamous, BC has 298 storage condos ranging from 120sq ft to 850 sq. ft and is located blocks from the water. The smaller units 8.5-foot ceilings and are large enough to store a utility trailer, golf cart or motorcycle. Their largest condo, at 1560 square feet has a 16-foot ceiling and can accommodate RVs, boats, cars, or a woodworking or automotive shop.
GaragePlus, located in Spanaway Washington, boasts being the largest facility in the United States. They offer six different sizes from Classic Garage at 16’x20’ all the way up to King Plus Garage at 18’x55’. With a clubhouse that includes pool tables, big screen TVs and high-speed internet and cable hook up in each unit, there isn’t much this project lacks!
Pioneer Storage Complex in Bellingham Washington has 18 condo units ranging in size from 24’x40’ to 31’ x 50’. Preliminary plans for the second phase are underway and they are aiming at doubling the total size of the development.
