Public Storage Facilities, Our Historic Landmarks

Public Storage Facilities, Our Historic Landmarks

Each of our company-owned Public Storage facilities is unique. Some were built just a few months ago. Others have a rich history as newly restored landmarks, such as our building at 3636 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. With fine art deco detail, it is one of the best-looking self storage buildings in the country. When the 13-story marvel was opened in 1928 as American Storage, Calvin Coolidge was president, the Ford Model A car was still in production and prohibition was in full force. At t...

Public Storage Rose Parade Float Video

Lifelong Pasadena-area resident George Garcia shot this video of our Public Storage Rose Parade float on his iPhone. For seven years, George has been in charge of maintaining the 1,400 roses at Pasadena City College, always paying special attention to those along Colorado Boulevard, where the Rose Parade passes every year.

We didn't want people to know that the spaceship would open up and our three "space" aliens would glide out to greet the crowd. Now that the parade is over, however, we can't wait tell you more about our Grand Marshal's Trophy prize winner and how it worked! First, you should know that there was a team of six people on board the float as it moved down the para...

Public Storage's Rose Parade Float is a Labor of Love

Most people who watch the Rose Parade have no idea of the work that goes into all that New Year's Day fun. There's welded steel holding up millions of pretty flowers, and there are months, sometimes years of planning on the part of a handful of float builders. In just two short weeks, Public Storage will proudly show off three fun−loving “space” aliens on our first float. But the project really began way back in January as all floats do, with a creative idea, a drawin...

Public Storage is Making History with its Rose Parade Float

It doesn’t seem like New Year’s Day without watching the Rose Parade in the morning and the Rose Bowl game in the afternoon—at least on television. It will be especially exciting for all of us at Public Storage to see our first company float travel down the Colorado Boulevard parade route in Pasadena on January 1—with three friendly “space“ aliens on board. We also can’t wait to invite two of our Facebook fans to join us with their own tickets to the parade, t...

Better Living with Self Storage: The Blog

There’s something powerful about getting your stuff, or your parents’ stuff, or you kids’ stuff out of the way and into a storage unit.  When everything’s in its place, it frees up space and time to relax and get more done.  At the same time, self storage lets you hold on to what’s important. For some of us it’s about nostalgia, remembering slow dancing at the high school prom in that green strapless dress, or wearing a letterman jacket from swim tea...
