Public Storage Opens a Million Square Feet of Storage Near Houston


Public Storage recently opened its newest self-storage location, its seventh in the Houston area this year. All together they added more than a million square feet of new storage in less than a year in one of the company’s largest and most important markets.

The new Public Storage at 8008 West Grand Parkway South, Richmond, TX 77406 boasts more than 1,200 climate-controlled storage units near Houston. The five-story, bright orange building is easy to spot from State Highway 99 near South Mason Road.

According to a prepared statement, thanks to its new locations, Houston eclipsed Dallas this year as the company’s largest market in Texas, beating it by 500,000 square feet of self-storage space.

The Richmond storage facility will serve residents of the rapidly growing community as well as those in Sugar Land and nearby master communities such as Aliana Houston, Harvest Green and Long Meadow Farms.

Richmond has experienced 4 percent population growth over the last five years according to the U.S. Census, and Grand Parkway, aka Highway 99, is being expanded in sections to accommodate additional commuters in the greater Houston area.

The new storage location, and many of the other newly constructed facilities around Houston, is indoors and offers climate-controlled storage in a range of prices to suit personal and business needs.
