G&G Boat ‘N’ R.V. Storage LLC received unanimous approval this week from the Queensbury, N.Y., Planning Board for a proposed self-storage facility that will comprise more than 60,000 square feet in 104 units. Owner Mike Giovanone intends to build the boat- and RV-storage business on a 4.1-acre tract at 74 Big Boom Road.
The facility will consist of two buildings. The first structure will comprise 27,942 square feet in 49 units, and the second will comprise 32,527 square feet in 55 units. Storage spaces will range from 14-by-38 to 14-by-45 feet, according to the source.
The project will incorporate perimeter fencing, computerized gate access and porous pavement for stormwater drainage. The site was previously used to stockpile soil, the source reported.
Giovanone also owns a 160-unit boat/RV-storage facility on Route 9P near Saratoga Lake, N.Y. He is the founder and president of Concord Pools & Spas, headquartered in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
The entrepreneur initially received approval for a Concord Pools location in Queensbury, but Giovanone told board members that project was suspended because the pool and spa industry “just came off one of the worst winters it’s ever had in history.”
