Landvest Corp., a property-management firm specializing in self-storage properties, has broken ground on a new project in Derby, a suburb of Wichita, Kan. The facility at Madison and Rock Roads will operate as Derby Storage. Though Landvest operates six facilities in the state, this will be its first in the city, according to a press release.
“We’re excited to expand our footprint in the Wichita MSA! We have operated here since 1985, and love the community,” said Brian Byrd, chief operations officer. “There is no doubt that this facility will amaze our neighbors, our customers and the community as a whole. This will be like nothing Derby self-storage users are accustomed to!”
Landvest is also developing a new Security Self Storage in Colorado Springs, Colo. The company operates four Security properties in the region, but this will be its first multi-story facility in the market.
Founded in 1985 and based in Wichita, Kan., Landvest manages a portfolio of more than 50 self-storage facilities in seven states under the Countryside, Iron Horse and Security Self Storage brand names. Its managed portfolio comprises more than 2.6 million square feet.
