NorthWest Crossing Self Storage


Beginning July 1, NorthWest Crossing and other westside Bend residents will have a local storage facility. Located at 2825 NW Lolo Drive, NorthWest Crossing Self Storage will sit between Summit High School and Miller Elementary School. Owner Jeff Payne says the storage facility is the perfect solution for the homeowners who prefer the smaller, craftsman-style homes in NWX, but own the sporting equipment to enjoy all that Central Oregon has to offer.

“While the homes in NorthWest Crossing are beautiful and innovative, they don’t offer a lot of storage,” says Payne, builder and owner of Panterra Homes. “We offer storage for all those toys including boats, jet skies, snowmobiles, canoes and those extra things you don’t have room for but need to keep.”

The 65,000 square foot building will house 360 drive-up accessible units and garages. The units range in size from 5’ x10’ to 10’x20’. The secure garages, most complete with automatic garage door openers, range from 12’x26’ to 14’x40’. The facility will be open from 6am to 10pm daily.

After settling on the NW Lolo Drive location, NorthWest Crossing became very interested in the idea of the commercial business. The $4.5 million dollar project took three and a half years to build, from start to finish.

While this is the first storage facility built by Panterra Homes, Payne is interested in the possibility of future projects. They work on four to six projects a year, ranging from kitchen remodels to custom home construction up to $1 million. Panterra has been around since 1980, with their current license active as of 1996. Panterra Homes is a Certified Green Building Professional, and Recognized by the Energy Trust of Oregon.

Payne’s real estate management company, Fieldstone Services, will operate the storage facility. He expects to hire three additional employees to run it.
