A city that is growing like Maricopa needs plenty of places to store things. Starting next spring there will be 660 more storage units available, as Omni Self Storage expects to open its facility on the south side of town in May 2022. Construction on the project began this June.
Fritz Beesemyer, a principal in Omni Capital LLC, which is developing the facility, said the project was years in the making.
“We’ve been talking to our lender, Great Western Bank, which has a large presence in Maricopa,” Beesemyer said. “They had been urging us to consider Maricopa for a long time, and that was a catalyst for us to go there. Also, one of our partners has in-laws that live in Maricopa, so he was seeing first-hand the growth that’s taking place there and we wanted to try to capitalize on that.”
The facility, which is now under construction at the intersection of Alan Stephens Parkway & Stonegate Road, covers 95,496 square feet and has a total of 660 storage units – 544 of those are climate controlled and 116 are not. The facility also offers 12 RV storage spaces.
Units will range in size from 5 by 5 feet to 10 by 35 feet. The RV stalls are 12 by 40 feet and are covered.
