Stor-It Now!, which operates two self-storage properties in Munster and Valparaiso, Ind., is seeking zoning approval to build a third site in the state, in Crown Point. The company owners appeared before the zoning board this week to request a special-use permit for the property on the northwest corner of 113th Avenue and Delaware Street in the Crown East Industrial Park.
The plans call for seven buildings containing 639 units. Two interior, climate-controlled buildings would comprise 58,841 square feet of storage space, while five structures totaling 22,275 square feet of space would contain drive-up units. Security features include electronic gate access and video cameras.
Entry and exit to the property would be positioned off Delaware Street to keep the traffic burden off 113th Avenue, said Jeffrey Katz, co-owner. "I think this is an exciting opportunity for myself, my partner and the city of Crown Point," he added.
Stor-It Now! opened its Valparaiso facility in 2010. The site’s 670 units are 100 percent occupied, Katz said. The Munster facility opened in 2016 with 450 units, which are 70 percent occupied, according to the source.
