Business owner John Dugan has opened a facility in Cicero, Ill., that will be managed by self-storage real estate investment trust CubeSmart and branded under its name. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Nov. 9 for the property at 1331 S. 55th Court. The event was attended by town representatives, business owners and residents, according to the source.
“It is always amazing when we have new businesses coming to Cicero because that brings new jobs and more economic development,” said Frank Aguilar, director of community affairs and special projects for the town. “We are excited to have CubeSmart storage, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
Property features include video cameras, and a retail center that sells moving and packing supplies. Customers can also purchase tenant insurance. As an added amenity, customers can opt to have staff accept package deliveries on their behalf.
“The response we have received from the people of Cicero has been tremendous,” Dugan said. “This project took a few years, but I am happy that we are able to contribute to the business sector of Cicero, and we look forward to having a fruitful relationship with the people of Cicero.”
CubeSmart owns or manages 910 self-storage facilities across the United States. Its operating portfolio comprises more than 60.5 million square feet.
