A Sennett storage facility is undergoing a 15,000-square-foot expansion to meet demand for climate-controlled storage, among other common customer needs.

AllStorage, at 450 Grant Ave., is adding a 10,000-square-foot climate-controlled building and another 5,000 square feet of standard storage to the 20,000-square-foot facility.

Also being installed are additional cameras outside the facility and inside the climate-controlled building, as well as a new gate and electronic entry system, AllStorage Manager Susan Baran said.

The commercial and personal storage company, which began more than 30 years ago and also operates locations in Elbridge, Auburn, Weedsport and Aurelius, has seen customer demand for storage evolve, Baran said. In addition to climate control, customers look for security, online account management, 24-hour access and other amenities, she continued.

"All of these features are available today with AllStorage," Baran said in an email. "These are important services we provide by having five locations in the area."

The Sennett facility will also add outdoor storage space — for cars, boats, RVs, etc. — which was previously unavailable there. A smartphone app for gate entry is in the works as well, Baran said.

With the expansion, the company will move its customer service center from Aurelius to Sennett, which Baran said will be more central. The company plans to add two to three employees as the project nears completion in late July to early August. The employees, who will join the company's current workforce of four, will perform security checks and maintenance at all five AllStorage locations.
