All tranfered with their companies, one said he works for General Motors but I don't recall a GM around here. One of the guys from Dallas is originally from Venezuela. He said he is a huge soccer fan who is planning on getting season tickets to all the Austin FC games.
The family from Vegas said there was once a time when it was affordable to live there. After doing their research, they chose the Austin area over their other options. Just saying...I'm one person, in 7 hours, welcoming 9 new people to Austin. Must be something going on around here...
That's an impressive amount of people in one day at just one of a zillion public storage facilities, and they are coming from a variety of locations.

GM has a large IT facility at Tech Ridge in the former Dell facility.
