Fort Wayne Self-Storage Facility Passes Zoning Appeals

Posted in News

On Thursday, the Fort Wayne (Ind.) Board of Zoning Appeals approved a 101,400-square-foot self-storage complex to be built on the Northeast side of the city by Fort Wayne Storage LLC. Despite opposition from Parkview Health, whose attorney argued the project would lower neighborhood property values, board president Carl Harz said having development on the site would make surrounding sites more attractive; and other neighbors such as Midwest America Federal Credit Union wrote letters supporting the project.
Fort Wayne Storage owns three other local self-storage facilities and plans to invest more than $5 million in this project, using brick and stucco on the facades facing neighbors. A 4-foot mound topped with 6-foot trees will shield residential neighbors to the south.
The City Council must still make the make the final decision on whether to rezone the site for commercial use.
