City council members in Glendale, Ariz., unanimously approved the development of a self-storage facility, gas station and restaurant on a vacant 6-acre site. The land was rezoned from commercial offices and condominiums to a planned-area development. It’s one of several infill projects being greenlit by the Glendale City Council. Infill sites are popular among developers because much of the infrastructure, including water and sewer, are already in place.
The Mashburn Co. in Scottsdale, Ariz., plans to develop the site in several phases. A gas station and convenience store will be developed first, followed by a restaurant and then the self-storage facility. The self-storage facility will include four single-storage buildings, no taller than 30 feet.
Jon Froke, city planning director, said the project has support from the neighborhood, which largely consists of single-family homes and multi-family residential units.
