LAKE FOREST, Ill. (PRWEB) October 30, 2018
Metro Storage LLC announced the purchase of a parcel of land in South Brunswick, New Jersey with plans to construct a new state-of-the art storage facility offering 668 units across 75,000 rentable square feet (RSF). Located at 3963 U.S. Route 1 in South Brunswick, the facility will feature a multi-story, 100% climate controlled, self-storage building totaling 60,000 RSF and three single-story, drive-up, non-climate controlled self storage buildings with an additional 15,000 RSF.
“The exceptional location of this property sets Metro up for success,” said Marty Gallagher, President of Metro Storage LLC. “We are excited to get started on construction of this facility and adding to the thriving business community along the Route 1 corridor. This site, with over 500 feet of frontage, provides us the strong retail visibility that we strive for in our developments. The mix of interior climate controlled and traditional drive up access units will provide options to meet all of the storage needs of the surrounding community.”
The new store will be located on a major north/south highway with excellent exposure, in a dense and affluent suburban market southwest of New York City, close to residential areas and major retailers. The store will feature a mix of interior climate-controlled and traditional drive-up access storage, large interior drive-in loading/unloading bays with several access points around the building, elevator access, state of the art security, and a large, modern retail office.
Construction is scheduled to commence in the coming months with expected completion in the third quarter of 2019. This will be Metro’s tenth store in New Jersey.
