“We obviously like the Chicago market, and we’re always looking for opportunities to expand here.”

Metro Storage LLC today announced the acquisition of a former retail building in Skokie, Illinois for conversion to a state-of-the-art Metro Self Storage® facility. Located at 3240 W. Touhy Avenue in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, the building will be developed into a state-of-the-art, two story, 100% climate controlled self storage facility offering 83,000 RSF of storage.

“We obviously like the Chicago market, and we’re always looking for opportunities to expand here.” said Metro Storage LLC Chairman Matt Nagel. “This property has all the right elements to construct and operate a successful storage facility.”

Construction is scheduled to begin later this summer and will include raising the roof on the building to create two stories of climate controlled storage. Features of the new store will include multiple loading points around the building, 100% climate controlled units, state of the art security and a large, modern business office.

“We knew this property was a good selection for conversion due to its excellent location on an extremely busy east/west arterial street with a dense three mile population, strong market demographics and a great retail building.” said Blair Nagel, CEO of Metro Storage LLC.

Situated on the border of Chicago and the suburbs of Evanston and Skokie, the new 884 unit store is scheduled to open in Spring 2016 and will be the 19th Metro Self Storage® store in the Chicago area.
