Cascade Storage held its grand opening in Roseburg on Friday afternoon, bringing an end to a long process that brings one of the largest storage facilities in Southern Oregon to town.

The over-sized building on at 1910 Diamond Lake Boulevard is open after two years of construction, dealing with setbacks due to weather and lack of materials.

There’s an average of 21 square feet of self-storage space available for every American household, the Self Storage Association reports. One in every 10 Americans rent space in a self-storage facility.

Dan Rogers, a resident manager, said the facility houses close to 700 units of various sizes.

“It’s a very needed commodity right now because all the storage facilities for miles around are full,” regional supervisor David Warren said. “So we’re here to serve the needs of the public.”

The storage company started in Arizona with two facilities, then added two in Medford before following the need for self-storage units to Roseburg.

This facility is the largest in the area and also the largest from the company — its initial property in Medford was already built when it was purchased. The company has already broken ground on one in Grants Pass that will be larger.

“It’s the norm now to build large units because the need is there,” Warren said.

The site sits on 3.82 acres and offers over 131,665 net rentable square feet. Units range in size from 5-by-5 feet to 32-by-20 feet. Prices range from $45 to $295 per month.

“We’re busy as all get out,” Warren said. “We unofficially opened on the 12th (of September) and we’ve already rented several units and have several reservations.”

Cascade Storage had its grand opening this past weekend, holding tours and giving away raffle prizes.
