Focus Property Group, a leading Colorado real estate investment and development company, announced today that Greenbox Self Storage, their first sustainable self-storage facility, is officially open to the public. Located at 3310 Brighton Boulevard, Greenbox Self Storage is the first LEED-Certified self-storage building in Denver and the first newly constructed storage project downtown in over a decade.

Currently home to approximately 17,000 residents and 44,000 students that attend a college or university in the area, the Downtown Denver population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, leaving many residents in search of available storage that is affordable, safe and conveniently located.

“Over the past 12 years, the residential population has grown more than 85% percent in downtown Denver,” says real estate developer and founder of Greenbox Self Storage, Bahman Shafa. “There just isn’t enough existing storage space to accommodate such growth, so we are thrilled to bring this new, state-of-the art storage solution to Denver.”

The facility includes 747 storage units, three street-level office/retail units, and 45,000 square feet of total rentable space. Unit sizes range from smaller, closet sizes of 2.5 x 5 feet, up to large 10 x 25 feet drive-up units which have direct access from the exterior of the building.

Additional features include computerized keypad access, individual door alarms on select units, climate-controlled units, closed-circuit video surveillance and web based payment options to ensure the highest high level of privacy and security for customers.

“Our goal was to make renting storage space downtown easy and accessible, while offering the best technology and services to our customers,” says Shafa. “We are also focused on supporting the community, which is why Greenbox was designed to be as sustainable as possible. We have 234 solar panels, energy efficient insulation, and even used recycled materials during the building process.”

The solar panels, which will generate 76,394 kilowatt hours annually, will eliminate an estimated 180,695 pounds of carbon dioxide from being emitted each year. This allows each unit at Greenbox Self Storage to save over 20 pounds of emissions per month when compared to a conventional, non-sustainable facility. Greenbox is pursuing LEED Silver certification, an enhanced level of recognition developed by the U.S. Green Building Council for high-performing, efficient projects built with an integrative approach to have a lower impact on their environment.

The exterior of the building was also designed with community in mind. It features a unique pattern of green and clear glass, with an eye-catching public art wall facing Brighton Boulevard that showcases works from local artists.

Greenbox Self Storage is just the latest addition to the up-and-coming River North (RiNo) district, which features a unique mix of industrial and creative businesses, such as art galleries, designers and photographers, alongside several new large-scale apartment developments. And with two new locations coming soon to the Denver area, Greenbox Self Storage is leading the way in sustainable urban storage in Colorado.

Storage units and retail space at the 3310 Brighton Boulevard location are available to rent now, with prices starting at just $49 per month. For more information about Greenbox Self Storage call (720) 924-4992 or visit
