Charlotte, N.C.-based Morningstar Properties has expanded its Texas holdings by acquiring six new locations. The new properties, located in the Austin and San Antonio markets, add 430,000 square feet of facility space and nearly 3,000 storage units to the company’s portfolio.
AUSTIN AREA LOCATIONS:
- 1001 West Goforth, Buda, TX 78610
- 10220 US HWY 290 West, Austin, TX 78736
- 4221 Ranch Road 260 North, Austin, TX 78734

The new facilities will join Morningstar’s two existing properties in Houston, expanding the company’s assets in the state to over 550,000 square feet and nearly 4,000 storage units. Morningstar currently owns and operates 35 storage properties, mostly concentrated in the Southern United States.
“These acquisitions quadrupled the number of properties Morningstar owns and operates in Texas and are a good indication of how bullish we are about the opportunities and growth trends in the state,” said Dave Benson, President of Morningstar Properties. “Given their proximity to multi-family residential, growing commercial corridors and college campuses, we expect these new properties to do very well for us.”
Morningstar funded the Texas acquisitions and all other property purchases and development since 2013 using its self-sponsored, private equity vehicle, Blue Doors Storage Fund I.
