This is the company’s third self storage facility
February 6, 2017: Uovo, a New York self-storage operator specializing in fine art, has opened a facility in the Blauvelt hamlet in Orangetown, NY. The company acquired about 9 acres at 100 Bradley Parkway last year for $14 million and converted a 34-year-old industrial building.
According to the source, the new self storage
facility has 140,000-square-feet of climate- and temperature-controlled space. It offers private storage rooms and warehouse space as well as private workspaces and a viewing room.
The business, whose name means “egg” in Italian, was founded in 2013 by art collector Steven Guttman. Guttman also founded Storage Deluxe Management Co. in Manhattan, N.Y., which has developed more than 55 self-storage facilities, according to the source. He’s also the former CEO of Federal Realty Investment Trust, which owns and redevelops commercial real estate in coastal markets.
Uovo now manages 520,000 square feet of storage in the region. It opened a 280,000-square-foot facility in Long Island City, N.Y., two years ago and has a 100,000-square-foot location in Orangeburg, N.Y.
