The suburb of Hawthorn has been a municipality of Melbourne since 1860 and a City since 1890. From 1843 land sales were first conducted out of a newly established township of Hawthorn. Public transport played a significant role in developing the Hawthorn region from a dormitory suburb during the 1880’s, to it’s now significant status in the Melbourne community. However, it has taken until 2017 to establish a Hawthorn storage HUB in this ever expanding landscape of Melbourne. With the establishment of Kennards Self Storage at 453 Auburn Road, Hawthorn, the local Hawthorn, Camberwell, Canterbury, Kew, Burwood & South Yarra community’s will experience a significant new chapter in the historical landscape of Hawthorn.

Kennards Self Storage expansion program is hitting a new momentum in the next few years. Acquisition circumstances and approval delays will make 2017 a particularly big year for the company’s growth.
After adding 16,811 square metres of additional space in 2014; then 14,445 square metres in 2015, KSS now has a development pipeline with over 118,021 square metres of space to be built and brought to market between 2017 and 2019.
This year KSS will be adding another 31,643 square metres in new centres and expansions across its 85 centre network.
Kennards Self Storage has consistently been the biggest and most active builder of new self storage centres in Australia for many years. The pipeline through to 2019 looks even greater.
In 2017, Kennards will open eight new locations in various Australian markets. NSW will have new centres in: Warrawong and Chullora; in Queensland they will open Murarrie; in Melbourne both Hawthorn and Thomastown will open; while in Adelaide, Croydon Park and Seaford Meadows will open their doors.
Kennards Self Storage at St Marys will be opening for business on the 25th November 2016. The state of the art storage centre is conveniently located on 69-73 Christie Street, St Marys.
The Centre Manager Steve is extremely excited about opening the centre. “This will be storage centre number 83 that Kennards Self Storage owns across Australia and New Zealand” Steve also goes on to say “I am excited to introduce the latest storage centre to the St Marys area, with the increase in housing and the demand for mini warehousing, this purpose built facility will meet even the fussiest of customers”.
The final touches are being made at Kennards Self Storage St Marys. This purpose built state of the art storage centre will be opening on the 25th November, 2016.
The storage centre offers a wide range of sizes starting from 1 square metre to 100 square metres. Start-up businesses and tradies will enjoy the warehouse spaces with drive up access.
Moving is made easy with a walk behind forklift available to use free of charge (no license required), flatbed trolleys and pallet jacks.
Kennards Self Storage will be opening its new centre at St Marys this summer. The state of the art storage centre is conveniently located on 69-73 Christie Street, St Marys. The centre is expected to open late November 2016.
The blue and orange Kennards building cannot be missed as you drive down Christie Street. The new building and the landscaped gardens add colour and vibrancy to the area. The St Marys centre will cater for the growing population building in the western suburbs of Sydney.
Kennards Self Storage is excited to announce the opening of their new self-storage centre built in St Marys busy industrial hub. This state of the art storage centre is located at 69-73 Christie Street, St Marys and will open late October 2016.
The centre consists of over 400 units ranging from 1 sqm to 100 sqm. A range of access options are available for customers including drive up, ground floor and lift access units.
“We are an Australian-owned family business with over 82 centres Australasia wide,” Operations Manager Tony Vuong said. “This new addition for Kennards Self Storage is a purpose built and designed centre.”

On the outer edge of Sydney’s Inner West a new development is looming.
With street frontage on the Hume Hwy work has commenced to fill an infrastructure gap in the business district of Chullora. The $10 million dollar Kennards Self Storage centre is due to commence building in August with an expected opening early 2017.
The time and location are perfect. Located at the cross roads of the Hume Hwy and Roberts Road, the centre will provide unprecedented levels of access to Sydney’s inner and outer west and Sydney’s South. It’s not a building you will miss, brightly clad in orange it will be an icon for the suburb.
Once completed this modern multi-story facility will feature our customary brilliant orange paintwork and will have a space to suit everyone given the broad range of unit sizes it will offer. It will also provide a quality self storage option to local residents in areas such as Morningside, Hemmant, Cannon Hill, Tingalpa, Balmoral, Seven Hills, Bulimba, Wynnum, Manly, Carina, Camp Hill, Belmont and Carindale.
Kennards Self Storage will start construction on another new centre in February, this one in the western Sydney suburb of St Marys.
Located on 61-63 Christie Street in St Mary’s the new centre is well positioned to serve the thousands of new residents coming in to the new suburbs of Ropes Crossing and Jordan Springs.
The growth of population in Sydney’s west has lifted the demand for self storage, as people relocate and renovate their homes leading them to use Kennards Self Storage in these times.
The St Mary’s storage centre will also have Kennards Enterprise Spaces which offer a low risk, low cost business accommodation to new and emerging businesses. These are the ideal incubator for new businesses as they can be rented without committing to an extensive lease; Kennards also do not require payment of a bond or payment of legal expenses on the user.
Stage 1 of the project will cost $9.8 million and should be open for business in October 2016.
Construction is underway in Adelaide’s southern suburbs for Kennards Self Storage 4th location in the South Australian market. The company will invest over $4M in a Seaford Meadows property it acquired in 2015.
The Onkaparinga Council took over six months to assess the rather innocuous application from Kennards to develop 31 Seaford Rd in to one of their new state of the art self storage centres.
The company was attracted to the growth expected in Seaford and surrounding suburbs and lack of quality of self storage provided in the area.
