Converting a former furniture store and health club into a storage facility might seem like a typical conversion, but for Metro Storage, located at 3220 W. Touhy in Skokie, Ill., it was anything but typical. The small lot didn’t make the project economically feasible, but that didn’t detour the company. They decided to literally raise the roof, which created more space for storage and also a very unique design for the facility. The $6.4 million project has seemingly paid off, proving very successful for the company.
