Nuvo Development LLC has proposed a three-story self-storage project for Cranberry Township, Pa. The company intends to build a 90,430-square-foot facility on 2.23 acres at 20709 Route 19. It would share a driveway with “The Cranberry Eagle” newspaper. The property would have 8-foot-high perimeter fencing, according to the source.
Conditional-use requirements would include an architectural design that resembles an office building. Due to topographical challenges, officials would waive the typical sidewalk requirement in favor of an $18,500 contribution toward an “access and circulation project” for the municipality’s Community Park, the source reported.
The self-storage proposal comes at the same time officials are considering new requirements for its planned residential districts. Changes could include sidewalk greenspace with benches, street lighting, and streetscape enhancements for new developments. The Route 19 site is surrounded by commercial development.
Nuvo has six self-storage projects under construction in Florida and Pennsylvania, with five others in its pipeline, according to the company website. Projects include a mixed-use self-storage and office complex in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., and a five-story facility in Jacksonville, Fla.
Nuvo Development, an affiliate of Winter Park, Fla.-based Nuvo Co., offers architecture, development and engineering services to the self-storage industry. The company is led by CEO Gary Cardamone, who founded the Stor-A-Way brand in 1999 with his brother Rich Cardamone. The brothers sold the properties in 2007.
