Construction will soon begin on Gastonia Self-Storage in Gastonia, N.C. The three-story, 100,000-square-foot facility will be on the northeast corner of Gaston Day School and Hoffman Roads, near existing restaurants and retail stores. The $8.83 million project will be built by Griffco Design/Build Inc. of Kennesaw, Ga., and is expected to open next year, according to the source.
Pearson Properties purchased the 19-acre plot in 2002 with the intent to build 25,000 square feet of retail and office space. It also briefly considered building a grocery store on the land, but company co-owner Joe Pearson said the space wasn’t adequate, the source reported.
The Gastonia Planning Commission approved a zoning change last year to allow self-storage. The property’s topography and its boundary with Catawba Creek have likely made it difficult to develop, said Jason Thompson, senior planner for the city.
