Prime Group Holdings is a private equity company that operates Prime Storage, which since 2013 has acquired $5.7 billion in assets and operates more than 400 self-storage service facilities with more than 28 million square feet of rentable space throughout 28 states in the U.S., two Canadian provinces and one U.S. territory, the islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix.

Prime Storage operates seven other facilities in Rhode Island, including sites in Warren, Portsmouth, Cranston, Narragansett, Warwick and Providence.

Robert Moser, Prime Group’s founder, principal and CEO, said last year that the company is focused on “executing off-market investments to acquire and develop high-quality self-storage assets in densely populated communities backed by strong demographics.”

The storage facility was constructed from the ground up in a project that was completed in March by True Storage, a Manchester, N.H.-based construction company that specializes in redeveloping retail properties, such as former Circuit City, JCPenney and Toys ’R Us locations, into self-storage space.

Before the site was purchased by 777 Providence Street LLC for $749,000 in 2021, the formerly vacant lot was previously owned by the city of Woonsocket, according to the community’s online property tax evaluation database.

The 2.03-acre property, which was once a baseball field, was most recently valued by city assessors in 2023 as being worth $495,400, before the self-storage facility was constructed there.

The Prime Storage Woonsocket location is now offering self-storage space starting at $68 per month for a 5-foot-by-5-foot unit.
