Move It Self Storage Austin is located just off South Congress near the Stassney intersection. This property is located only +/- 5 miles from downtown Austin. There is visibility from Congress Avenue where traffic counts exceed 26,000 vehicles per day. There are more than 3,500 individual apartment units located within one mile of the facility. Six new multifamily developments totaling over 1,800 units have opened within five miles of the property since Q3 2015. There are an additional 5,000 units planned or under construction in the immediate vicinity.
Austin continues to be one of the most difficult markets to find development sites and have self-storage projects entitled. The only two self-storage development projects we are aware of are located at 5402 S. Congress and 8327 S. Congress. 5402 S. Congress is being developed by Austin based World Class Capital Group and is not expected to be complete until the middle of 2018. 8327 S. Congress is expected to be complete Q4 2017 and is being developed by Austin based Endeavor Real Estate Group. The additional supply of these units (200,000 sq. ft) will be more than off-set by the continued population growth of the South Congress / Stassney corridor.
The most exciting development with immediate proximity to Move It Self Storage is the St. Elmo Marketplace.
