arc Storage: Southern Indiana’s Largest Indoor Climate-Controlled Self Storage Facility

January 16, 2017

Located in New Albany in the old Kmart, arc Storage offers safe and secure access and a humidity and temperature-controlled environment that allows its customers to have an enjoyable renting experience.

“We wanted to make sure we could repurpose the Kmart facility and provide a purpose. There’s a lack of other indoor-conditioned storage in this area,” Alan Muncy, president and CEO of ARC, said. “We don’t have anything of this type in Southern Indiana,” he added.

Around 78,000 square feet of the roughly 90,000-square-foot building will be used for the storage facility. The rest of the space is unusable due to the building’s configuration, Muncy said.

The size of the units range from 3 feet by 3 feet to 15 feet by 20 feet, and “everything in between,” according to Muncy.

A portion of the lot (.7 of an acre) has been subdivided into an outlot. Muncy said he is negotiating with a new-to-the-area regional chain restaurant and will be able to announce the restaurant within 30 days.

ARC purchased the vacant Kmart for $1.3 million and neighbor Planet Fitness for $930,000 last January.

“[The building] has easy access to the interstate and there is minimal use for large box buildings because so many retailers are not utilizing 100,000-square-foot buildings anymore. There’s not a lot of active retailers on the market for that,” Muncy said. “We wanted to make sure we could repurpose the facility and provide a purpose.”
