Update 1/25/17 – Secure Self Storage has opened its facility on Connecticut Avenue. The four-story building comprises 770 units. The site was the former headquarters of Microphase, a developer of radar subsystems, and is also home to the Stonefield apartment building, which opened last year, according to the source.
In addition to catering to apartment dwellers, the facility was designed to attract local contractors working on nearby development projects. Optional power supply is available to larger units. “In this area, its people moving into new apartments,” Bill Green, senior district manager of operations for Secure, told the source. “You’ve got apartment complexes popping up everywhere and still breaking ground. Contractors are coming into the market because there is so much [work] out there to do these jobs, so they need storage.”
Secure intends to develop additional locations in Connecticut, including Stamford and possibly Bridgeport, the source reported. Company owner Stephen Hardy is a Norwalk resident.
