Less Mess Storage (Less Mess), Central and Eastern Europe’s largest self-storage player, recently held a Cornerstone Event for its latest self-storage development in Warsaw.
Self-storage, which first arrived in Europe, in London in 1979, is a rapidly growing industry. The business offers both residual and business customers safe, secure storage rooms on flexible rental agreements, and with easy round the clock access, seven days a week. The rooms can be as small as 0.5 sqm and as large as 50 sqm, with all sizes in between. Self-storage is like a hotel for your stuff.
Located along the S8 highway on the west side of Warsaw, this new self-storage centre, when completed next year, will offer almost 5,000 sqm of net lettable area over five floors. This will be the largest such building in Poland to date. Less Mess are also combining for the first time the latest green technologies, which will not only reduce energy consumption to almost zero, but will also offer climate controlled conditions for customers’ stored goods.
Ewa van Veenendaal-Rawicz, Acting Director at the International Trade Department at the British Embassy, and also representing Ambassador Jonathan Knott, and Jan Żychliński, Mayor of the Western Warsaw county, were the guests of honour at the Cornerstone Event.
Guy Pinsent, CEO of Less Mess, commented, “We are delighted with the progress on this development which will be our third store in Warsaw. This building combines the latest 21st century technologies to offer the best customer experience. In just eight weeks since construction started, two out of the five floors are already up. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Less Mess team, our general contractor, Agmet, and all our suppliers for their hard work.”
