U-Haul Co. of South Philadelphia has acquired a self-storage facility in East New Market, Md. The former Baytree Self Storage at 5403 Mount Holly Road has been branded as UHaul Moving and Storage of East New Market.
The facility encompasses 101,487 square feet of storage space on 6.9 acres of land. It features two two-story, climate-controlled buildings as well as three single-story buildings. The property also has a single-story warehouse that contains an apartment and showroom. The warehouse, a former skating rink, was constructed in 1980, while the remaining buildings were built in 1999, 2000 and 2003. In addition to self-storage, the facility offers truck and trailer rentals, U-Box portable-storage containers, and 14 RV-parking spaces.
“We are right off of Route 50, which provides easy access for our customers," said Dominic Catalano, marketing company president. "We look forward to meeting the self-storage and moving needs of the residents in East New Market."
The acquisition of the East New Market facility 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.
