U-Haul revealed plans to convert a former 81,864-square-foot warehouse, in St. Cloud, Minn., to a retail, moving and self-storage facility. Maiers Transport & Warehousing sold the property, after more than 20 years of ownership, Yardi Matrix data shows. 

The facility, now offering truck and trailer sharing, boxes and moving supplies and towing equipment, is slated to open for rent this summer. After conversion, the building will encompass 650 climate-controlled units, retail and showroom space and hitch installation services.

Located at 700 54th Ave. N., the 1973-built property is within 4 miles of downtown St. Cloud and is near Waite Park, a growing residential area of the metro.

U-Haul currently owns and manages more than 71.6 million square feet of storage space across North America. The development is part of the firm’s Corporate Sustainability initiatives aiming to help communities lower their carbon footprint by following an adaptive reuse strategy instead of building facilities from the ground up.

U-Haul is also converting a former Kmart Store in Rock Springs, Wyo., a historic rickhouse building in Lexington, Ky., and a movie theatre in Rome, Ga.
