NOTE: There have been a string of bugs related to the Warehouse. If you have one, start by looking at Zynga's CityVille Forum. Some upgrades now appear to be automatic, broken, missing or in very slow roll-out.
Like other structures that aren't decorations, it requires energy to build. Once using 10 Energy to build it, there are three positions to fill before it can be of use: the floor supervisor, forklift driver, and shipping manager.
Once constructed, the warehouse can hold up to 3 decorations. You can expand your warehouse to hold more decorations by hiring people for 9 additional positions (each position you fill allows you to fit an additional decoration into your warehouse), bringing the total amount of decorations the warehouse can hold to a maximum of 12. You may choose to fill a position by paying 6 city cash.
Originally players would recieve one warehouse upon completion of the warehouse quest, but as of May 25th, 2011, players have reported getting a second warehouse in their inventory. Zynga later removed it from the game, calling it an error.

Note: In order to upgrade your Warehouse you will be required to complete the Upgrade Warehouse Quest.
You can expand your warehouse to hold more Businesses, Community Buildings, and Houses by hiring people for 12 additional positions (each position you fill allows you to fit an additional decoration into your warehouse, except for spaces filled by Bonus Crew), bringing the total amount of Businesses, Community Buildings, and Houses the warehouse can hold to a maximum of 24. You may choose to fill a position by paying 5 city cash.
The house/business or community building must be built and complete before you can store it in the warehouse.

As of February 22nd 2012, the warehouse could be further upgraded to hold up to 115 items; you need materials to upgrade to extra levels. (See the Upgrade Your Warehouse! goal)
Actually, you can store more than 115 items. Every Business, Community Building and House you store in the Warehouse will fill as much spot as many items you placed in. But if you store the same type of Decorations in your Warehose, they will occupy only one spot, until you reach an amount of 1000. You can store more than 1000 pieces of that decoraiton, but the amount above the first 1000 will occupy an another spot. (For example: if you store 1000 European Cobblestones in your Warehouse, that will be counted only for one, but if you store 1001 pieces of it, they will occupy 2 slots.)
