Metro Self Storage in Lower Providence Township, Pa., is hoping to expand its facility by adding a fenced outdoor storage area. Geoffrey Glazer, acquisitions vice president for Kimco Realty in Timonium, Md., told the Board of Supervisors this week the self-storage operator would like to expand into an available lot in the Ridge Pike Plaza after the proposal for a 20,000-square-foot fitness center fell through.
Metro Self Storage will provide elevation drawings of the proposed project, including new fencing, when it submits its formal application, Glazer said.
“We did a $2 million investment for the self-storage proposal several years ago,” he said. “We rehabbed the building and cleaned up the exterior. The self-storage [facility] is about 70 percent occupied.”
The available, 37,373-square-foot lot has been empty since a supermarket vacated the space more than six months ago.
