General contractor Ferrara-Buist Cos. plans to construct a 72,000-square-foot self-storage facility in Lake Wylie, S.C. Lake Pointe Self Storage will be built on 10 acres at 4180 Charlotte Highway and offer traditional storage units along with more than 70 slots for boat storage to capitalize on the local marina market, according to the source. The project is scheduled to be complete in early 2016.
“With the marinas being full, hopefully we can serve that market,” said David Buist, a partner with Ferrara-Buist. The property is near the Lake Wylie Woods housing development and includes four smaller parcels along Charlotte Highway that will be reserved for retail or restaurant tenants, Buist told the source.
Plans submitted by commercial real estate firm The Tuttle Co. indicate the storage facility will have an office on the southern end of the property and self-storage units in the back-right corner, according to the source.
Longtime resident Libby McElduff told the source she isn’t surprised new development is coming to the area but is hopeful the project will include paving for Spurrier Court, a gravel road that borders one side of the site. “I knew it was going to come someday,” she said. “I just feel we were fortunate to have lived here 29 years before it happened.”
The developers likely won’t pave Spurrier, however, because access to the storage facility and outparcels will be from the main highway, Buist said.
