Self Storage
Back to Property Types


Childress Klein established the self-storage division in 2005 to meet the needs of customers looking for state-of-the-art climate controlled multi-story storage facilities.

A rapidly growing sector, we have developed a strategic process and disciplined approach to site selection, design, development and management of best-in-class self-storage facilities across the southeast. As a private company, we are well-capitalized and develop projects for our own portfolio, and as a result place an importance on longevity, and long-term value creation.

Led by Chris Poholek, our self storage team targets properties in densely populated areas in the southeast region where growth is dynamic and rents are compelling. Childress Klein currently has eight (8) properties under management, and nearly 1.2 million square feet of space developed.

In 2019, Life Storage entered into a joint venture with Childress Klein, purchasing 6 of the SpaceMax Storage facilities and rebranding them.

All of our facilities include the following features:

  • Humidity and temperature controls
  • 24-hour surveillance
  • Over 60 security cameras
  • A wide variety of unit sizes
  • Covered loading area
  • Business and personal storage
  • Controlled access
  • After hours access
