About Us

The Next Generation of Self-Storage

Coastal Storage Group is a self-storage development company based in Charleston, South Carolina. Founded in May of 2016 by Aaron Rowley of Dominion Holdings, Inc., and Steve Koewler of the Miller Valentine Group, the company currently owns and operates self-storage facilities primarily located in the Southeast, including South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Kentucky.

The team is made up of a group of conscientious owners who strive to make prudent investment decisions that make sense in both the short term and the long term of the investment cycle. We use stringent due diligence and investment metrics to mitigate downside risk throughout the development process, while maximizing sustainable return potential of each individual project. Our private ownership structure allows us to offer complete flexibility in creating and maintaining strategic professional partnerships while utilizing a solid, seamless approach to construction disciplines.

Target markets consist of emerging neighborhoods in high growth areas where demand for self-storage exceeds current supply. Our facilities contain units for both residential and commercial customers and mainly offer climate control units to protect your valuable belongings. Our state of the art surveillance systems monitor activity both inside and outside of the facility and our keypad entry system restricts access to customers that only rent from us.
