Metro Self Storage received approval this week from the Lower Providence Township, Pa., Board of Supervisors on a zoning change that will reduce the number of required parking spaces at the company’s facility in Eagleville, Pa., from 320 to 12. The move will allow the self-storage facility to add two outdoor areas for boat/RV storage at the Eagleville Plaza location, according to the source.
One of the additions will be a 12,300-square-foot fenced area behind the storage facility. The second will be a 20,250-square-foot fenced area behind several retail shops in the shopping center, where some of the facility’s current parking spaces are located, the source reported.
Rob Lewis, an attorney representing Kimco Realty Corp., a real estate investment trust headquartered in New Hyde Park, N.Y., said the zoning change would allow Kimco to market the shopping center more effectively. The board voted 4-1 in favor of the change.
Metro Self Storage is the operating brand of Metro Storage LLC, a privately owned, fully integrated real estate operating company specializing in the development, acquisition and management of self-storage facilities nationwide. Headquartered in Lake Forest, Ill., the company operates more than 80 self-storage facilities in 11 states.
