The Jenkins Organization Inc., a Houston-based developer and operator of 45 self-storage facilities in five states, has opened Murphy Self Storage in Murphy, Texas. It’s one of four projects the company is opening in the greater Dallas area this year, according to a press release.
The facility at 305 W. FM 544 contains 635 climate-controlled and drive-up units. A grand-opening celebration is slated for April 21, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Last month, Jenkins opened two locations in Austin, Texas: ATX Storage and Lakeline Storage. The company has seven new developments and five expansions underway, all in Texas and slated to be complete within the next year. The projects total more than 1.2 million square feet of storage space and represent a $125 million investment, according to company officials.
Formed in 1989, Jenkins has an ownership and management portfolio comprising more than 3.5 million square feet of storage space in Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
