Providence, RI officials are considering a plan to convert the former home of the state Board of Elections into a five-story self-storage facility at 50 Branch Ave. It was a Mack Truck dealership before the state began using the building, which would be partially demolished to clear the way for a 73-foot-tall structure with 1,399 units. Trunk Space LLC of Quincy, MA owns the property and has proposed the site plan. The state sold the building in 2020. RAB Properties is listed as the buyer, paying $1.6 million to the state for the building. Source: The Providence Journal 

In Saugus, MA, the Planning Board is examining a plan submitted by Trunk Space Storage to convert the Colonial Traveler Inn at 1753 Broadway, on Route 1, to be made into a four-story self-storage facility. It presently serves as a homeless shelter. The motel has 24 rooms, half of which are occupied, with the other half available to the state. The town seized the property in November for unpaid taxes. The self-storage facility would take up 121,000 square feet and have 1,000 storage units, each 10 to 12 square feet. Jumbo Capital, the financial arm of Trunk Space, owns three self-storage facilities — CubeSmart locations in Everett and Quincy, as well as an Extra Space Storage facility in Norwood. Source:
