As just one more indication of its strong growth across the country, the U-Haul company has announced plans to build a new site in Santa Fe.
The project will go up on Cerrillos Road near Governor Miles Road and will see the building of a more than 64,000 square foot, three-story indoor storage facility that will feature up to eight hundred individual self-storage units.
In what will be both a self-storage facility and truck rental service, U-Haul will also put up a 4,900 square foot warehouse slated to house more than 200 portable storage units.
The largest do-it-yourself moving and storage operator in the country, the Phoenix-based U-Haul recorded revenues in excess of $700 million in 2017, with more than 16,000 dealerships nationally.
In recent years the company has increasingly focused on building out new locations by re-purposing existing structures in both urban and suburban neighborhoods.
Plans for U-Haul’s new Santa Fe location, which will also see the construction of a showroom, are expected to be reviewed by city officials later this spring.
