Brunswick, NY Public officials, business owners and community leaders yesterday joined local real estate developer The Rosenblum Companies to celebrate the grand opening of the Capital Region’s second ValuSpace Personal Storage facility at 850 Hoosick Road in Brunswick.
The multistory 66,000 s/f self-storage facility is located next to Tractor Supply Co. on Route 7, a half-mile west of the Walmart Supercenter.
The Rosenblum Cos. purchased the property in August 2017. Renovations to the site included the removal of a 1½ story pole barn used to service commercial diesel engines.
ValuSpace Troy offers 499 temperature-controlled and drive-up storage units over two floors that range in size from 25 s/f to 300 s/f to meet the varied needs of homeowners, renters and small businesses.
The facility features advanced security systems including personal code-controlled access, high-resolution digitally recording cameras and alarmed doors; and an office staffed seven days a week offering packing materials for sale and free coffee and bottled water for customers.
ValuSpace Troy is an important complement to the hundreds of new and pending housing units in the area, including Troy and Lansingburgh, which are close to the new facility.
“We are incredibly excited to open a ValuSpace facility in Rensselaer County,” said Seth Rosenblum, CEO of The Rosenblum Cos. “Not only does ValuSpace Troy uphold our standards of first class facilities, amenities and service at competitive prices, we are reactivating a former light industrial property with an indeterminate future to support the area’s development.”
In addition, ValuSpace Troy creates virtually no traffic impact or parking demand and will generate significant additional property tax revenues for the Town of Brunswick.
“On the occasion of their Grand Opening, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new friends at ValuSpace to our Town and our community. They have built an attractive, state of the art facility on our busy Route 7 corridor focusing on providing higher-end, temperature controlled, personal storage options. ValuSpace will be a welcome addition to the myriad of retail and service-oriented businesses which are already available on Hoosick Road, and which help make our Town a popular and attractive place for people to live, work, and do business. I know ValuSpace will be a great success,” said Town of Brunswick Supervisor Phil Herrington.
“ValuSpace Troy provides necessary infrastructure to support our small business, retail and residential development,” said Robert Pasinella, Executive Director of the Rensselaer County Industrial Development Agency. “This facility is a terrific addition to our business community in Rensselaer County and we were glad to work with The Rosenblum Companies on bringing the project to fruition.”
