Stor-Age Announces Opening of Gillooly's Store


Stor-Age Property REIT Ltd are proud to announce the latest addition to the existing portfolio of high quality self storage facilities with the opening of Stor-Age Gillooly’s in Johannesburg. The highly anticipated facility is set to open its doors to the public on 1 December 2016 and promises to be an excellent addition to the ever expanding property portfolio run by Stor-Age.

Situated alongside the N3 highway, Stor-Age Gillooly’s is visible to extremely high volumes of traffic heading both to and from Johannesburg. This exposure and prominence bodes well for both the brand awareness of Stor-Age as a business as well as the facility itself. The state of the art facility will serve the surrounding communities of Edenvale, Linksfield, Bedfordview and Essexwold extending the network of properties on the eastern side of Johannesburg which already boasts existing facilities in Kempton Park and Boksburg.

Along with the standard benefits that are true of all Stor-Age facilities such as flexible lease periods, multiple unit sizes, access control and 24 hour security, Stor-Age Gillooly’s will be fitted with individual door alarms on each unit. This state-of-the-art security future is unique to Stor-Age and this store will be the second of the portfolio to have the feature installed. The system allows for the tenant to be notified via SMS when their unit is accessed at any time and is in keeping with the standards of security that Stor-Age are committed to providing at their facilities.

Development of the property came at an estimated project cost of R 64.3 million and saw major excavation which required blasting and the removal of 15 000m3 of earth to be removed in order for the basement levels to be constructed. The facility is built above an underground stream which posed various challenges to construction. Despite these challenges and the impact of flooding in the area, the project was completed on time and within budget.

Stor-Age Gillooly’s is a multi-level facility with four floors, two of which will be below ground. This will allow the facility to boast an impressive GLA (gross lettable area) of 8 300m2 and over 750 individual units available for rental. Units will be available in a variety of sizes ranging from 3m2 to 30m2. The opening of the facility is representative of Stor-Age’s continued growth and development in the Johannesburg region and further increases the national footprint enjoyed by the business.
