Real Estate developers Brexton LLC and Edwards Cos. have proposed a six-story self-storage development for the corner of Long and Young streets in Columbus, Ohio. TriVillage Downtown Storage would comprise about 750 units and offer climate control and wine storage, according to the source.
The storage facility would be part of Edwards’ Neighborhood Launch project, a nine-block community development of condominiums, parks and tree-lined streets meant to revitalize the downtown area, according to the project’s website.
"We see growing demand for storage downtown," said Timothy Galvin, president of Brexton. "People living downtown don't have basements or garages with wall-to-wall storage units to store their holiday decorations, extra furniture and seasonal clothing. This is an untapped market with real potential."
The project still requires permits and city approvals, but the developers would like to open the storage facility by the end of next year, the source reported.
