Private Property Condemnation: Self Storage Facility Partial Taking
V&E condemnation lawyers in Houston, Texas, represented the owner of a self storage facility in a condemnation case related to the State’s acquisition of a portion of the owner’s property for the expansion of a highway. Prior to the taking, the property was developed into a Class A self storage facility.
As a result of the State’s taking, there was a considerable loss of valuable storage space, and the remainder property was left with unsafe access and internal circulation, all of which are vital to a self storage operation. The State’s offer did not compensate the owner for the extensive damage caused by the taking. The case proceeded to trial, after which the jury returned a favorable verdict for the property owner.
