If you are looking for simple storage, The Vaults is likely not for you.
If you are looking to create a space that is full of life, vibrancy and inspiration—along with your boat or cars or recreational vehicles, of course—then what are you waiting for? The Vaults has seven units remaining at its Kelowna location, which is nearing the end of construction and is expected to start passing units over to owners by the end of the year.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, either, when it comes to designing your space. Storing your cars, boats and RVs is cool and all, but having the space reflect your lifestyle is what The Vaults wants to see its clients enjoying.
“If they’re looking for a lifestyle around what they store—and we truly believe that you love what you’re storing—The Vaults is a great solution,” The Vaults vice-president James Murray says. “With that, it’s the customization element that’s important. The space does become their own. All of our units have a uniqueness to them in construction and design. They’re not a cookie cutter.
“… I would love to be able to see someone have their personal art space in there. Have a gallery on the main floor and their artist loft up on the mezzanine. There are so many uses. While we’re very car-centric, we go beyond that. It’s really lifestyle storage.”
The Vaults Kelowna has only two units of 1,677 square feet remaining on the market, but the biggest daddy of them all—the 4,600 square-foot monster—was snapped up recently. The earlier in the construction process a unit is purchased, the easier and more cost effective it is for clients to incorporate their ideas into the space.
“What’s quite cool is some of the themes that people put into their space that they could never do in their home” Murray says. “We have one unit in Calgary where there are five different graffiti artists with massive graffiti art on the wall. You can carve out and make this space completely unique to you. It’s a piece of you, but it doesn’t have to be there every single day like it would be at home.”
Each unit includes a mezzanine overlooking the bigger space on the main floor, large windows and a three-piece bathroom. The walls went up in mid-August, the roof is on now, the windows are being put in place, the asphalt paving is complete, and this week the main overhead door will be installed.
The premier secured storage condominiums are located in Airport Business Park near Kelowna International Airport, and the company will be hosting a milestone event on Thursday, Nov. 21, to give its clients and potential clients a clearer vision of what they’re getting. The Vaults has designers who take a client’s vision and bring it to life.
“When people get a chance to walk in and see the space today with the mezzanines in place, they can start to get a better feel for what that space could be for them,” Murray says. “How many cars they could fit? How many boats? If an RV needs to be in there. If they’re looking to have a bit of a personal office space. If they’re looking for an extension of a recreational space from their house or their condo.
“It gives them a feel for what they can create and how this will enhance their lifestyle.”
