Simply Self Storage (SSS), which owns or manages 229 self-storage facilities in the United States and Puerto Rico, is seeking zoning approval from city officials to add a second story to its facility in Kettering, a suburb of Dayton, Ohio. SSS representatives met with the council on March 14 to discuss the proposal. A second reading and vote will be held at the next council meeting, according to the source.
The 7-acre property at 4125 Hempstead Station Drive is across the street from a Meijer grocery store. The site is one of four SSS properties in the Dayton, Ohio, area. The company has 21 facilities in the state.
There are several storage projects under development in Ohio, including the conversion of a Target retail store in Dayton by Storage of America LLC. U-Haul International converted a former shopping plaza in the city to storage last year. Construction on Airport Deluxe Indoor RV Storage in Tipp City, another Dayton suburb, began last fall. The property at 11710 Peters Pike, near the Dayton International Airport, will cater to vehicle-storage tenants.
Headquartered in Orlando, Fla., SSS was founded in 2003. The company’s properties comprise more than 18 million square feet of storage space.
