Update 1/15/18 – The planning commission voted unanimously this week to recommend Kolb’s self-storage facility for approval. The project would combine 13 lots, comprising most of a city block and wrapping around a cluster of homes, according to the source.
Planning staff recommended approval along with 13 “standard” operating conditions, all of which Kolb was in agreement. “We thoroughly support the staff report as well as the complete 13 provisos outlined in the staff report, and we will work with the staff to address any technical issues that they may have,” he said.
No one spoke in opposition to the project during the planning meeting.
12/22/17 – Real estate developer Gordon H. Kolb, CEO of GHK Developments Inc., is seeking permission to build a three-story self-storage facility in New Orleans called Superior Storage. The property at 4866 Tchoupitoulas St. houses an existing building that formerly housed Guillot’s Sanitary Supplies. The site is zoned mixed-use development, which doesn’t include self-storage use. The planning commission will review the proposal on Jan. 9, according to the source.
The storage facility will encompass much of the block, which is bordered by Lyons, South Front, Tchoupitoulas and Upperline Streets at the rear. The property is also near homes on the Tchoupitoulas/Lyons corner. It has enough parking spaces to meet city requirements, the source reported.
GHK Developments is a commercial real estate developer serving the southeast United States. Since 1972, it has developed 3 million square feet of gross leasable area.
