GATES Construction has completed building The Lock Up Self Storage facility located at 12700 University Drive in Fort Myers. The new facility consists of a three-story, 106,016 SF climate-controlled building with 849 units ranging in size from 5’x5′ to 10’x40′. Climate control has become an important aspect within storage facilities in order to protect the clients’ valuables from the intense Florida heat and humidity. Established in 1976, The Lock Up Self Storage Group is one of the leading private storage companies in the industry, owning and operating more than 40 facilities in eight different states, totaling over 1.6 million square feet of self-storage space. Design services for this project were provided by Partners In Design Architects.
