The former Baldini's Bakery in Summit Hill, Pa., will be turned into a 13-unit self-storage facility. Approval for the conversion was granted by the Summit Hill Zoning Hearing Board Thursday after a zoning hearing was rescheduled in November.
The developer, Todd Mason of Mason Realty, converted a former bar into self-storage units and also owns units in Nesquehoning, Pa. Mason purchased the Baldini building nearly a year ago after the business closed. The bakery is considered a landmark in Summit Hill.
Although Mason considered other applications, including re-opening the bakery or an apartment complex, parking and zoning restrictions made these options not feasible.
Although the building has three floors, the units will all be located on the first floor and new siding will be installed to enhance the building’s appearance.
