Jeff Wright – Principal
After 15 years as a math professor at the University of San Diego, Jeff joined his father Jim Wright (1930 – 2015) to manage and grow Bridge Storage, which Jim had built in 1997. Recognizing potential value for the community beyond simply providing self storage, Jeff and Jim undertook the experiment of transforming a portion of the storage space into creative workspaces, forming Bridge ArtSpace within the walls of Bridge Storage. The impact of offering affordable workspace to the Richmond community was striking, and motivated the Wrights to develop BridgeSpace as a vehicle for transforming underutilized and challenged properties into vibrant, community-centered rental operations.
