LSC Development LLC opened a new self-storage facility in Glenview, IL at 3701 W. Lake Ave. It’s on a 5.6-acre lot, south of Northshore Glenbrook Hospital and near Glenbrook South High School.

The developer converted a pair of three-story, 1970s-style office buildings that formerly housed the Pioneer Press, medical and dental offices, and served as a training site for the Glenview Police and Fire Department. LSC added a one-story structure to connect the two buildings. The facility has 176 spaces for RV, boat and vehicle parking. The climate-controlled buildings have 81,113 NRSF spread across 74 storage units. The site offers drive-up, climate-controlled units and also offers two covered loading bay areas.

Developer Renard Management of Mahopac, NY, wants to build a self-storage facility in Montgomery, NJ, where once stood a demolished office building, on Route 518. It would be next to Wawa, across the street from Bank of America and backing on the Montgomery Shopping Center. Renard seeks two buildings – a three-story, 123,295-square-foot structure and a one-story, 9,907-square-foot building – on the 2.99-acre lot.
