Redevelopment is happening all over South Milwaukee these days.
I am excited to see work well under way on a roughly $750,000 expansion of South Milwaukee Self Storage, 1005 Columbia Ave. Two new storage buildings are being erected to open in August, with plans for another three in 2022.
All in, it will be more than 27,000 new square feet for the facility that first opened in 2017.
I recently spoke to the owner of South Milwaukee Self Storage, Chris Hitler, and here is what he had to say …
“It has been exciting to be part of the transformation of South Milwaukee. We appreciate the assistance the City has given us to redevelop this dilapidated lot into a safe and secure location for area residents and businesses to store their personal belongings, household items, vehicles and much more.”
The expansion will add 137 units to the 290-unit facility, which includes a variety of options, from small outdoor units to large, climate-controlled indoor units with indoor vehicle loading and unloading. The facility offers 24/7 access, gated entry with key pads and security cameras. More information here.
I want to thank owner Chris for his continued investment in our city. His company has transfomed an eyesore trucking hub and vehicle storage lot into a very positive development for the Second District, and city.
