U-Haul has unveiled 350 new indoor self-storage units in a downtown Dayton building that the moving and storage company acquired in 2017.
The units are now available at U-Haul Storage of Downtown Dayton at 360 S. Main St. The 83,000-square-foot building, just north of a McDonald’s restaurant, dates to the early 1900s. It has housed many businesses, including a Borchers Ford car dealership for decades until it closed in 1979, and a vocational and rehabilitation services health-care firm in the 1990s.
The facility has been vacant since about 2010, Mark Quinn, U-Haul Company of Dayton president, said in a release.
“U-Haul stepped in to revive the property,” Quinn said. “We’re excited to show off our hard work. Downtown Dayton is seeing a major revitalization. There are new apartments popping up everywhere. University of Dayton students and long-time residents will be pleased with what we’ve done and what we’re able to offer now.”
More than three years of work went into refurbishing the building, which now includes high-tech security features and climate-controlled options, U-Haul officials said. Further renovation will create 250 additional storage rooms.
U-Haul Storage of Downtown Dayton will be operated remotely by U-Haul Moving & Storage of Dayton and general manager A.J. Ross.
