Safeguard Self Storage to Build New Facility in Chicago
Safeguard Self Storage is preparing to build what will stand as their 73rd company store and officially purchased land on Oct. 2, 2014, located on North Clybourn Ave. in Chicago. Architectural plans show the facility to make up 68,000 square feet with a total of 880 storage units. Features to be offered include computer-controlled access, drive-up loading area, surveillance cameras, and heating/air conditioning.
“The Chicago area is a great market for Safeguard and will provide the company with the opportunity to increase its critical mass in this city,” says Allan Sweet, Chief Executive Officer of Safeguard Self Storage. “We consider our growth in Chicago as an important next step for the company.”
Construction is already underway for two other Safeguard facilities in the Chicago area located at West Rogers Park and Uptown neighborhoods.
“All three Chicago stores will be open in 2015,” says Jim Goonan, Senior Vice President of Development of Safeguard Self Storage.
