The U-Haul Co. of Southwest Ohio recently opened U-Haul Moving and Storage at Glencrossing Way in Cincinnati, the company’s first location in the western part of the city. Built in 1992, the property at 5131 Glencrossing Way is just west of the Glenway Crossing Shopping Center. It encompasses 96,713 square feet of storage space on 9.3 acres. The facility currently only offers truck, trailer and U-Box pod rentals, but self-storage and a showroom will be added in the future.
"It is exciting to see how well this location is developing already," said Drew Case, marketing company president. "We serve as an excellent force for revitalizing the area, and our customers are already looking forward to the addition of self-storage to our location."
The opening of the Glencrossing Way property was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which supports infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, according to a company press release. U-Haul’s adaptive reuse of existing buildings eliminates the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps local cities diminish their unwanted inventory of unused buildings, U-Haul officials said.
Established in 1945, U-Haul International Inc. has more than 40 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,000 owned and managed facilities throughout North America.
