Safeguard Self Storage recently opened a new facility and expanded two others in Miami. The new facility at 800 W. Flagler St. is the company’s 12th in South Florida. Containing 53,000 rentable square feet of storage space in 700 units, the property offers climate control, a drive-up loading area, computer-controlled access, individual door alarms, video cameras, and moving and packing supplies.
"Safeguard is excited about its expansion in South Florida and feels this store will be a great addition to its portfolio,” said CEO Allan Sweet.
“We have been in the South Miami market since acquiring our first three pieces of land for development there in 2001,” said Ken Finlay, senior vice president of operations. “These 12 stores give Safeguard strong brand presence and help us serve our customers there well.”
Safeguard also recently expanded two locations. The company added 500 units to its Design District store in Miami and 193 units to its Palmetto Expressway store. Outside of Florida, Safeguard has eight properties under development, four each in Chicago and New York.
Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Atlanta, Safeguard operates facilities in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The company is owned and operated by Morgan Stanley’s Prime Property Fund.
