Planned and proposed

  • The developers of Patriot Self-Storage in Leesburg, VA are seeking a rezoning that will let them build a pair of five-story buildings instead of three-story ones. While the planning commission recommended the rezoning, the town council sided with local residents opposed to the height change at a recent public hearing, reports Leesburg Today. Council will consider the proposal again at a September 21 meeting.
  • Charlotte, NC-based Morningstar Mini-Storage is building a facility on five acres at Nautical Drive and Latitude Lane in Lake Wylie, SC. The facility will be part of the planned Shoppes at the Landing. A sign went up announcing the project September 1, according to the Herald Online.
  • Developer Doug Degenhart has proposed a 88,900-square-foot self-storage facility at 2160 Commerce Center Boulevard in Dayton, OH. Degenhart plans to operate the facility with his wife Carol, according to the Dayton Business Journal.

Further meetings are planned before a final decision on the project is reached.

Under construction
