A 40-unit self-storage facility has been approved by the planning board for Route 6 in Mattapoisett, Mass. Property owner Peter Noyer said Village Self-Storage will feature two single-story buildings on half an acre. He expects to begin construction on July 1, with a targeted opening by the end of August.
The half-acre parcel designated for self-storage is part of a larger 2-acre lot owned by Noyer. The full property currently consists of two houses, a sign business, a boat-storage facility and a gravel road. Noyer’s plan is to leave the two residences standing and replace the boat storage with the new storage buildings. One building will be 20-by-120 feet and the other 20-by-40 feet. The gravel road will provide facility access and be widened to 14 feet. An additional 20 feet of access will be added around the buildings.
Units will range from 5-by-5 to 10-by-20 feet, with six units suitable for storing vintage cars, Noyer said. The facility will also offer low-level, motion-detecting lighting and secure fencing. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
