After discussing the impact a self-storage development would have on the neighborhood, the planning board in Burtonsville, Md., last week approved the site plan for an ezStorage Self Storage facility. ezStorage has several facilities in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Originally heavily challenged by the community, the self-storage developer worked with city planners and the neighborhood for several months to minimize the facility’s impact.
Neighbors were concerned about the facility’s signage and the visibility of rooftop equipment. The 147,142-square-foot building will have trees to buffer the building from Route 29 and add screening on the roof to cover HVAC equipment.
Construction on the 3-acre site will begin this fall. The facility will have about 1,000 units on six floors.
