TOWN OF POLK —
Colgate-area developer Peter Briggs believes his new
two-building, multi-unit self-storage complex will be
completed by around Sept. 30 — just in time for area
residents to store their sports utility or recreational
vehicles, among other items, when the camping and
outdoor summer activity season is over.
“I have approval to build 400 storage units at the
location at 3651 N. Lovers Lane Road,” Briggs said.
“These two buildings will be the first of the units to
be completed in this phase.”
Briggs owns My Other Garage, a company that already
leases other self-storage space elsewhere in the area.
Aaron Nagel of Keller Inc., who is charge of
construction, said there is room for many other future
units at the site.
“The first building of the initial two buildings will
have 14 self storage units. Each unit is 13 feet by 45
feet. They will have 12-foot-by-14foot overhead doors
for larger boats and RV storage. They will have
automatic sectional doors with key pads,” Nagel said.
“He said once we feel we’ve reached a point that other
units should be built then we’ll begin work on
construction additional buildings there.”
Nagel said building #2 is 190 feet long by 40 feet wide
and that will contain the 10by-20-foot storage units.
“All are for cold storage. There are 40 in that
building, 36 of them are 10 feet by 20 feet. Four others
will be 10 by 10. They will have 9-feetby-8-foot roll-up
doors,” Nagel said. “They also are all for cold
Briggs said he believes there’s a need in the community
for additional storage space, especially since earlier
in the year the Slinger Village Board tightened
regulations on where such units can be parked on
residential lots and for what length of time.
“Some of these spaces are large so they will be able to
handle the large units people can’t store on their home
lots,” Briggs said. “The large doors will also make it
easier and more convenient to get their materials in and

units can get more information from him by calling
