Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates more than 1,300 self-storage locations across North America, received approval last week from the Anthem Community Council to double the footprint of its facility in Anthem, a master-planned community in North Phoenix. The expansion will be built on an empty 4-acre parcel at 42202 N. Vision Way, just north of the existing facility, which is on the west side of the street.
The new buildings will be designed to mirror the current site, with the two parcels joined as one, according to the source. The plans call for 93 new storage units and more than 100 vehicle-parking spaces.
Located in Anthem Commerce Park, the facility backs up to West Ravine Lane in the Desert Terrace neighborhood. There’s roughly 125 feet of open space between the storage property and the homes, the source reported.
U-Haul announced a similar expansion for its facility in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., last month. The company purchased a 1.02-acre property adjacent to its existing site at 14535 Lebanon Road. The expansion will add 400 units as well as rent U-Box portable-storage containers. Construction is expected to be complete next spring.
Established in 1945, U-Haul has more than 44 million square feet of storage space at its owned facilities throughout North America.
