The store, situated at the 96th Street and Olio Road intersection and one mile east of Geist Reservoir, features 418 storage units and a retail building currently leased to Geist Montessori Academy. The store was built in three phases during 2007, 2009, and 2014, and opened under company management on September 27, 2016.
"Our latest acquisition is a state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of the growing, affluent Fishers/Geist market in northeast Indianapolis," said president and chief executive officer of Global Self Storage, Mark C.
