LAS CRUCES, N.M., Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A contemporary U-Haul® self-storage facility will be coming to Las Cruces after the Company's recent purchase of six acres at Rinconada Boulevard and Highway 70. U-Haul acquired the property on Sept. 24.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Northrise is scheduled for completion in 2023. Plans call for a three-story building encompassing more than 85,000 square feet.
The facility will house at least 600 indoor, ADA-accessible self-storage units with climate-control options and high-tech security features at affordable price points. It will also feature a warehouse for U-Box® portable storage containers and offer truck and trailer sharing, moving supplies and more.
"Las Cruces continues to be a popular destination for retirees, and with such a family-friendly lifestyle, people from all over the world are settling here," said Bianca Sotelo-Herrera, U-Haul Company of Southern New Mexico president. "We're pleased to be working with city officials to provide a convenient, state-of-the-art store to meet the growing needs of Las Cruces."
While U-Haul Moving & Storage of Northrise is under construction, other U-Haul stores and local small businesses serving as U-Haul neighborhood dealers are available to care for DIY moving and self-storage customers. U-Haul Moving & Storage at El Paseo at 1608 El Paseo Road is open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.
