U.K. self-storage operator Big Yellow Group PLC has submitted plans with the city to expand its facility in Leeds, England. The company intends to add 28 storage units to the property at 1 Gelderd Place, according to the source.
The combined total space would comprise 5,276 square feet on a 23,680-square-foot plot. The units will be built on a tarmacked area north of the site that’s currently rented to two car dealerships. The units would be constructed with white, trapezoidal cladding, which is common for industrial buildings of this type, according to the application. They’ll feature roll-up doors in the company’s signature yellow.
Big Yellow also recently acquired a 2-acre parcel within the 13-acre Segro Park Bracknell development in Bracknell, England, with plans to build a new self-storage facility. The land was purchased from real estate investment trust Segro PLC, which is developing a 90,000-square-foot warehouse inside the park, according to a press release.
Big Yellow Group operates 92 self-storage locations in the U.K. under the Big Yellow Self Storage and Armadillo Self Storage brand names, with most concentrated in Greater London. Its total portfolio comprises 5.4 million square feet.
