The other 2 acres, zoned residential, have a cooperative living house built in 2018, with plans for a second one concurrent with the storage project. Phase One has a price tag of $5.5 million and includes one large climate-controlled building with 245 indoor units, and two smaller structures, each with 70 units. A second phase could add 200 units.
