U-Haul has announced plans to convert a 43,347-square-foot property in Modesto, Calif., to a modern self storage facility.

The 2.6-acre property housed medical offices and a fitness center until U-Haul acquired it earlier this month. The 1978-built asset, located at 2004-2012 McHenry Ave., last changed hands in 2015 for $4.8 million, Yardi Matrix data shows.

Preliminary conversion plans for the two-story building include 500 climate-controlled interior units and a warehouse for the storage of portable containers.

The reimagined facility is part of the retail corridor along McHenry Avenue, serving a high-density, single-family residential area 3 miles north of downtown Modesto. The property will be operated remotely by a U-Haul self storage facility located at 1625 McHenry Ave., roughly 2 miles away.

Recently, U-Haul announced plans to convert an old movie theatre in Rome, Ga., into a modern self storage facility with 500 climate-controlled units. The adaptive reuse project is set for completion by the spring of 2022.
