U-Haul International Inc. recently acquired the former University Self Storage in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and has rebranded it as UHaul Storage of Cedar Falls. The property at 6110 University Ave. encompasses 41,308 square feet of storage space in 11 single-story buildings, a two-story office and a manager’s apartment on 2.7 acres of land. The facility is near College Square Mall, which includes more than 50 retail stores, specialty boutiques and restaurants.
“This facility will receive many renovations to bring it up to U-Haul standards,” said Randy Dickson, marketing company president of U-Haul Co. of Iowa.
The acquisition of University Self Storage 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.
