City Storage intends to develop “penthouse apartments” above its self-storage facility at 500 Indiana St. in San Francisco. The facility is currently five stories, but the business owners want to supplement revenue by adding a sixth floor with 17 residences, according to the source. The storage-unit configuration would be unchanged.
The project would add one three-bedroom apartment, seven two-bedroom apartments, four one-bedroom residences and five studios, the source reported. The storage business would also add a new lobby and 17 bike spaces for residents.
City planners appear to support the project, the source reported.
The facility serves the areas of Dogpatch, Mission Bay and Potrero Hill, Calif. In addition to traditional storage units, it offers wine storage. It currently has 28 indoor parking spaces, four large-capacity freight elevators, and two loading bays that can accommodate up to four moving trucks, according to the City Storage website.
City Storage also operates a self-storage location in Emeryville, Calif.
