In New York, the Yonkers Industrial Development Agency approved financial incentives for a $15.4 million CubeSmart self-storage project at 1060 Nepperhan Ave., to be built by KCT Inc., and preliminary approval for financial incentives to a $15.8 million self-storage project at 1969 Central Park Ave.
The CubeSmart project involves finding another home for the current occupant, Health Products Corp., and demolition of the current 9,820-square-foot building. The CubeSmart would be eight stories and include 100,000 square feet of space for 750 to 900 units. Construction is estimated at 14 months. KCT Inc. garnered a recording tax exemption of about $231,573 plus a sales tax exemption of approximately $444,846.
