Treasure Island Storage, which operates five self-storage facilities in New Jersey and New York, plans to build a three-story facility on the site of the former Hansel ‘N Gretel deli manufacturing business in Glendale, N.Y. The property at 79-40 Cooper Ave. will comprise approximately 100,000 square feet in 1,200 units, “with parking that would function as a storefront and offices,” according to the source. Construction is expected to begin early next year.
The vacant buildings have already been demolished. Though the project doesn’t require any waivers from the city’s department of buildings nor approval from the Queens, N.Y., Community Board 5 (CB5), Treasure Island CEO James Coakley met with the CB5 executive committee in May and agreed to present to the board’s land-use committee when the project is further along, the source reported.
The facility will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Treasure Island has five more New York development projects in its pipeline, with three in Brooklyn and two in the Bronx, according to the source.
The company currently operates two self-storage facilities in New Jersey, one in Brooklyn and two in Queens.
