The Jenkins Organization Inc., a Houston-based developer and operator of 45 self-storage facilities in five states, plans to build a new facility in East Downtown Houston (EaDo). Expected to open this summer, the property will comprise 108,000 square feet of storage space in 830 units. Features will include climate control, gated entry, video cameras and a resident manager.
“We are excited to become part of the EaDo community. The ground-up development of a full block off York Street allows us to conveniently serve downtown, east downtown, Eastwood and the University of Houston,” said Robb DeJean, director of development. “Our management team is preparing to open, and eager to become the premier class-A destination for self-storage within the area.”
Jenkins has opened several new facilities in Texas this year and has seven new developments underway. It’s also expanding three existing sites and plans to purchase three more.
Formed in 1989, Jenkins currently has an ownership and management portfolio comprising more than 3.5 million square feet of storage space in Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
