Chicago-based self-storage operator LifeStorage has opened a new facility in the city’s historic West Loop neighborhood. The property at 1205 W. Jackson Blvd. is in a growing area and will serve business and residential customers, company officials said. It is near trendy restaurants, shops and galleries, as well as residential lofts and apartments.
“This 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,” said Michelle Wight Sands, director of operations. “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. 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.”
LifeStorage was founded in 2002 by owners Jean Jodoin and Christopher Barry. The company currently has 49 facilities in eight states, with a heavy concentration in the Chicagoland area.
