U-Haul plans to convert Former Kmart to Self-Storage

The property is located in Green Bay, WI

June 1, 2015:  The city of Green Bay has given U-Haul the go-ahead to convert a former Kmart store on the city's east side into new regional offices and retail operations. Reports:

The city’s planning commission had several concerns when U-Haul first submitted its permit request in March, but the issues were resolved, the source reported. U-Haul agreed to create at least one outlot site for future commercial development, resurface the parking areas within two years, and improve the architectural fa?ade of the building. The company also agreed to submit a landscaping plan for the development and limit commercial-grade vehicle displays to 15 stalls along Main Street, the source reported.

The $3.5 million expansion by U-Haul Co. of Northern Wisconsin and the U.P. will change about 87,000 square feet of the former Kmart at 2201 Main St. into space for self-storage units, vehicle rentals and a retail showroom.

Approximately 35 employees, including workers for the company's offices, will shift to the site.

U-Haul International Inc. was founded in the year 1945. It has over 40 million square feet of storage space at over 1,000 owned and managed facilities throughout North America, including 11 in De Pere and Green Bay, Wis.
