But in fact, it’s emerged as a growing business in the city, where coveted properties trade between major players for multimillion-dollar sums. Before the bill passed, the industry was on the upswing. There are currently around 920 self-storage facilities spanning 50 million square feet in New York City, according to Michael Mele, a senior managing director with commercial brokerage Marcus & Millichap. The firm released a report that found asking rents at non-climate-controlled facilities increased 3.3 percent to $2.74 per square foot in 2017, while climate-controlled units logged a 1.5 percent rise to $3 per square foot.
