New Business: Self-Storage Planned for Columbia Avenue

My Storage Home will soon be calling South Milwaukee home.

The self-storage company is planning to open its ninth location — its first in Milwaukee County — in South Milwaukee later this year. It will replace LTL Service at 1005 Columbia Ave., giving a much-needed facelift to this property.

The South Milwaukee City Council approved the conditional use permit for the development on Tuesday.

The project will be built in two phases:

  • Phase one will include renovation of the existing primary building on the property to include approximately 100 indoor storage units, with work beginning as early as this month. Construction of six outdoor buildings housing another 150 units is expected to begin later this summer.
  • Phase two will calls for construction of five new buildings on the west end of the property; until that phase is built, that portion of the site will have outdoor vehicle parking.

Please join me in welcoming My Storage Home to South Milwaukee. It’s exciting to see another business invest in our city, on a site in sore need of an upgrade.

    Good Evening Mayor Brooks, I was just wondering why south Milwaukee’s street names don’t all have North,South,East,West in the name like Oak Creek and Cudahy do. Are the full names just hidden. Just Wondering.

    Does the city plan to build more houses for sale? Primarily bigger houses too?
