United Storage Norwalk of Connecticut will open its doors this month as part of a new altruistic real estate development, all of the profit from which will be donated to Norwalk-area charities. Built by local developer Building and Land Technology (BLT), the project includes a new, four-story apartment building in addition to the 355-unit self-storage facility.
The project at 80 Fair St. was originally intended to be affordable housing built by the Human Services Council of Mid-Fairfield County, according to BLT President and CEO Carl R. Kuehner III. That plan was disrupted when a neighboring business, Norwalk Self Storage, sued the council, saying the project would block its signage.
The city asked BLT to acquire the land and help it move forward. The company built the self-storage to fund the housing project. It will donate all profit from the apartment and storage rentals to local charities.
United Storage Norwalk will host a grand opening on June 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open to the entire community, the event will include family-fun activities, free food, a live band and storage discounts.
