By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
LifeStorage has recently announced the opening of its new self-storage venue in the rapidly growing, historic Chicago West Loop neighborhood. The Chicago-based self-storage provider for residential and commercial clientele, LifeStorage, was founded in 2002 with a single storage facility and has since then grown to 49 locations in eight states.
Located at 1205 West Jackson Boulevard, the new facility aims to cater to the needs for high-quality self-storage options in a continuously expanding neighborhood. Chicago’s West Loop, due to recent urbanization and revitalization efforts, is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the city and is home to successful restaurants, shops, galleries and spacious residential lofts and apartments.
LifeStorage of West Loop features units ranging in size from 25 square feet to 300 square feet. Clients can also choose the contractor storage option which features distributor-size units with tall ceilings and equipped with phone lines, electrical outlets, overhead lighting and loading dock access.
Director of Operations for LifeStorage, Michelle Wight Sands said in a statement that the “area is experiencing tremendous growth and LifeStorage is delighted to be able to help people cope with that growth by providing a safe, secure place to house their excess belongings.
“Industries such as fashion and the arts, as well as numerous design outlets and boutiques have settled in this area, making storage space an essential component to growth,” she says. “We’re intent on meeting the need for storage by providing a solution that’s far and above the expectations of the people now living and working in West Loop.”Tags: Architecture/Design, Chicago Lead Story, Chicago self storage, Commercial, Consumer, Consumer Type, Developers, Development, economy, leasing, LifeStorage of West Loop, Local, Managers, National, operations, Owners, Professional, property management, Property Type, Regional, Self Storage
