Tuck Realty Corp., a land-planning and development company, is seeking approval from city officials in Epping, N.H., to build a mixed-use project that will include self-storage, a car wash and retail space on a 40-acre parcel along New Hampshire Route 125. The property at 276 Calef Highway is near Telly’s Restaurant and Pizzeria.
The development would include a three-story self-storage facility, a 17,000-square-foot retail building and a car wash at the front of the property. The storage facility would be branded as Bluebird Self Storage. Two lots at the back of the property would be reserved for future industrial development, said Joseph Coronati, a project representative and co-owner of Jones & Beach Engineers Inc. Tenants for the retail area, which would include a drive-through, have yet to be identified, he added.
Coronati also met with representatives from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to discuss the site’s point of entrance. It was determined the ingress and egress should line up with the entrance to Epping Regional Health Center, which is on the opposite side of Routh 125, according to the source. Creating a four-way controlled intersection to access the health center and new development would be the goal, Coronati said.
No action was taken during the April 14 planning meeting, and a follow-up has been scheduled for May 12.
Founded in 1990 by W. Turner Porter, Tuck Realty focuses on residential land development in Maine and Southern New Hampshire.
Bluebird Self Storage is owned by Bluebird Storage LLC, which also operates the Greenland Self Storage brand. The company opened a Bluebird Self Storage facility in Rochester, N.H., earlier this year and is building three more in the state.
