The "What's in Store" Age
Trivia exists everywhere and about eveything. For example, did you know that there are 2.2 billion square feet of selfstorage space in the United States?
Plus, the first billion square feet of storage space was built over a 25year period (19731998), while the second billion was built over an 8year period (19982005).
Question 1: Is the amount of current selfstorage space greater than equal to, or less than the area of Seattle? Explain.
Question 2: When would one expect there will be 3 billion square feet of selfstorage space? Explain...did you use a linear or exponential model?
Question 3: Assuming it continues to increase at its current pace, when would one expect the amount of selfstorage space to equal or exceed the area of the State of Washington?
