ezStorage is dedicated to the growing “green” movement in construction.
Our Charles Village building in Baltimore, Maryland was our first LEED certified building. The Charles Village project rehabilitated an older existing structure. Today, Charles Village is a state-of-the-art self storage facility. At ezStorage we take pride in limiting our impact on the environment. Our Elkridge facility is a Gold LEED certified building. Elkridge is a great reflection of our continued dedication to the “green” movement.
LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a certification program of the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED has a rating system for new buildings constructed. It scores buildings on their impact on the environment. It also scores how comfortable the workplace is for employees.
All future ezStorage locations will also be LEED certified.
