Site of Former Topless Coffee Bar in Maine Converted Into Self-Storage Facility


The site of a former topless coffee bar and motel in Vassalaboro, Maine, will be converted into a self-storage facility.

The portable building that once housed Grand View Coffee Shop on Route 3 will be torn down, while an existing structure will be converted into 24 self-storage units. David Coulombe, owner of Stoney Acres Investments LLC, received unanimous approval from the city’s planning board last week to move forward with the proposed self-storage development.

The Grand View Motel and coffee shop burned down in June 2009. Owner Donald Crabtree built a new structure where the motel once stood and added a portable building to house the coffee shop. According to city records, Coulombe is purchasing the land from Crabtree.

The facility will have a hunter green roof and doors, and tan siding, similar to that of another self-storage facility Coulombe owns. Although there will be no fencing around the property, Coulombe said there will be a manager living on the property.
