The Hampshire Cos. has opened a 106,500-square-foot self-storage facility in Hartford, Conn. The company acquired the existing asset and modernized and expanded the site. Extra Space Storage was appointed to manage the facility.

Locate at 1407 Park St., the facility is situated along Interstate 84, approximately 2 miles from downtown Hartford. Around 123,000 people live in the area, and the storage property is close to many apartment communities, including The Lofts on Park, Whitney Manor and Shepherd Parl. The two-building self-storage facility offers 712, climate-controlled units, ranging from 25 to 400 square feet.

Capital Improvements

The Hampshire Cos. added a new elevator, roof and façade to the buildings and upgraded the facility’s security and fire/life systems. In addition, the property was expanded with a five-story, 50,000-square-foot storage space.

“The Hartford location is just one of many successful projects that have allowed us to apply our value enhancement strategy to deliver a best in class, in-demand modern state-of-the-art facility that delivers strong returns to our investors, lenders and partners,” said James Hanson II, president & CEO of The Hampshire Cos., in prepared remarks.
