The Callowhill residences are constructed of match sticks. I find it appalling the storage structure is designed to better conserve the welfare of its contents than the residential building.

Perhaps someday the storage structure will be converted to apartments as market forces apply pressure.
Not a building code expert by any stretch, but I believe that's because of the differing requirements for multi-floor commercial vs. residential, not a conscious decision by the storage company developer.
