Tenant Storage Lockers & Bike Storage – The Impala [Case Study]
Project: The Impala – New York, NY
Dealer: Giant Industrial Installations – College Point, NY
When Storage Space is at a Premium
Living in a high rise condominium in New York City can be exciting and convenient, but condo tenants do give up a few things that would otherwise be available in the suburbs. One of those critical amenities is tenant storage space. The Impala Condominium building in New York City had a basement area that had previously never been used. The superintendent of the building had worked with WireCrafters and Giant Industrial Installation Company on previous projects and recommended WireCrafters’ Tenant Storage Lockers to the Impala Board President. With the square footage prices in New York City being what they are, the Board recognized that this was a great opportunity to provide an economically feasible common storage area. The Board President could see there was a great opportunity here to not only provide tenants with additional storage space, but also to utilize an area in the building that was going unused.
Add Storage in Existing Building Common Areas
Condominium storage lockers in New York City will always be in demand. The Impala Condominium building is very unique in that it has a 12’-0” high ceiling clearance in the basement. Giant Industrial was able to utilize the nearly 12’-0” high clearance by installing 6’-0” high double tier tenant storage lockers turning every inch of space into a revenue producing amenity for their residents. Double tier storage lockers and double stacker bike racks were used to take advantage of the overhead clearance. Ladders and other equipment were made available to the residents for easy access to the tall storage lockers.
Tenants Value Storage Space
Giant also combined two seldom used rooms into an additional bike storage room and condo storage locker room. Bicycle storage in New York City and other metropolitan areas is a must-have for any building owner or manager. WireCrafters’ Bike Stacker System accommodates up to 10 bikes in one fixed unit and was installed throughout the bicycle storage room. The stand alone Wall Rider Bike Bracket was used to maximize their bike storage capacity. The residents were thrilled to have a functioning bike room with dedicated secure bicycle parking. This setup was a vast improvement over their previous situation where bikes were cluttered together and inaccessible.
Giant Industrial Installation has been selling WireCrafters’ Tenant Storage Lockers for over 20 years and has since added the WireCrafters Bike Rack line in recent years. Giant Industrial feels these two product lines by WireCrafters are engineered for both ease of installation and are able to stand the test of time. Giant Industrial’s clientele represent repetitive business and continue to ask for WireCrafters’ products, including these tenant storage lockers and bicycle storage solutions, in all of their buildings.
