Real estate developer Brexton LLC received approval last week to build a self-storage facility on an empty parking lot in the Brewery District of Columbus, Ohio. The 84,750-square-foot property at the corner of Liberty and Short Streets will include 700 storage units in six stories, with one below ground. The project is similar to another six-story facility the company is building in the city at the corner of Long and Young Streets.
“Columbus is greatly underserved for [this] luxury self-storage, and this particular neighborhood is off the charts. This is a $9 million improvement,” a company representative told Brewery District Commissioners.
The half-acre site, owned by Tow Ltd., is near Columbus Brewing Co. restaurant, a Kroger store and Liberty Place apartments. Traditionally known as the Old German Brewing District, the neighborhood includes several historical buildings.
Before approving the development, the Brewery District Commission stipulated changes for the color and design of a cornice on the façade, according to the source. Brexton plans to release new renderings of the facility this week.
Founded in 2001, Brexton specializes in commercial construction, financing services, property management, renovation and real estate development.
