Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates more than 1,200 self storage locations across North America, continues to acquire existing storage facilities as well as convert empty buildings to self storage.
The company recently announced the acquisition of a 3.6-acre property in Florissant, Mo., on which U-Haul plans to build a three-story, 79,330-square-foot storage facility. U-Haul Moving & Storage of Florissant II at 1350 N. Lindbergh Blvd. will be operated remotely by U-Haul Moving & Storage of Florissant, just down the street. An auto dealership that was built on the property in the 1960s will be torn down. The building had been condemned and vacant for eight years, according to a source.
