Compass Self Storage, a member of the Amsdell family of companies, has purchased a storage facility in Fort Worth, Texas. It’s the company’s eighth acquisition this year. The site was purchased by separate affiliates of Amsdell Group LLC and Compass Self Storage LLC and will be rebranded under the Compass name, according to a press release.
The property at 4209 Alliance Gateway Road comprises more than 49,000 net rentable square feet of storage space in climate-controlled and drive-up units. It also features covered vehicle-storage spaces, a retail office that sells moving and packing supplies, and truck rentals.
