Hunt Midwest Completes Fifth Climate-Controlled, Self-Storage Facility in KC Metro

Kansas City, MO — September 7, 2021 — Hunt Midwest has opened another StorTropolis location in the Kansas City metro area, a 110,670 square foot facility with 760 climate-controlled units in Lenexa, Kansas. The newest self-storage facility, near K-10 and Woodland at 19585 W 102nd Street, marks the fifth Kansas City location since the brand launched in 2018. Other locations include StorTropolis Shawnee, StorTropolis Brighton (KC North – Clay County), StorTropolis Tiffany Springs (KC North – Platte County) and StorTropolis Blue Springs.

The three-story Lenexa facility houses units that range from 3.5’ x 5’ to 14’ x 50’ and includes secure, drive-through access to fully enclosed loading areas and elevators. The largest units can accommodate RV storage. To develop the project, Hunt Midwest partnered with Strickland Construction, a Kansas City-based construction company specializing in storage complexes.

“By combining our team’s real estate development expertise with Strickland’s experience in self-storage facility design, we’re able to deliver a cutting-edge product that exceeds consumer expectations,” said Doug Coleman, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Investments for Hunt Midwest. “We’re thrilled to expand our presence in the growing self-storage industry with a best-in-class product that meets the needs of homeowners and renters alike.”

StorTropolis locations provide a host of amenities, including:

  • State-of-the-art technology that gives customers a virtual leasing process
  • Advanced security included gated entry and 24-hour video surveillance
  • Customer call center staffed 24/7
  • Enclosed loading bay with direct unit access
  • Oversized elevators

StorTropolis is the first facility in the metro area to offer contactless unit rental. Customers can view available units, compare pricing, and complete the leasing process all online. StorTropolis also offers customers the option to lease through an on-site office.

StorTropolis is operated by Storage Asset Management (SAM), a privately owned, third-party management company that specializes in self-storage. “StorTropolis is an ideal partner,” said Melissa Stiles, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for SAM. “We’re both committed to delivering an exceptional product and dedicated to our local community.
