It’s not your father’s self-storage place.
Texas-based Greenspace will soon make its way to Stafford County while bringing unique ideas to market.
According to co-founder Rick Stockton, he and his partner David Ledoux decided to use shipping containers as the cornerstone of their storage facilities. These are the same shipping containers on the backs of trucks, trains, and ships on the high seas.
Unlike most storage facilities built chiefly of brick and mortar, when the new Greenspace facility is complete, a three-story glass and steel building will surround the storage containers making them sound for use. Using shipping containers allows for reduced costs and creates a sturdier storage building.
“The magic is that the shipping containers provide all the structure for the floors, the walls, the ceilings, and roofs,” says Stockton. “So it replaces all those thick metal studs and metal pans and concrete.”
The company is in the process of patenting its construction methods. When complete, the shipping containers converted to storage units will be subdivided, with space priced starting at $170 a month for a 100 square foot, climate-controlled unit.
Stockton also says that Greenspace decided to open its first Virginia location in Stafford because of the number of people renting storage space. With its status as a bedroom community for active and military personnel and its proximity to Quantico Marine Corps Base, storage becomes necessary for people to rent storage while they’re away on duty.
Greenspace plans to continue growing from its original three facilities in Texas to other states in the country. It already has one facility in White Marsh, Md., and plans to build another facility in Virginia. Plans are also in the works for expansion into New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
This summer, greenspace plans to open the facility, located on Route 610 near Parkway Boulevard in North Stafford.

The Dale City Farmers Market has been serving its local community since 1987. It is one of the largest open-air markets in the area. Their first donation last May was over 3,300 lbs of produce. That single donation provided 2,825 meals to food insecure communities.
