Property owners Matthew and Danielle Mauldin recently received town-council approval to develop a self-storage facility in Richfield, N.C. The project along U.S. Highway 52 will comprise 18,000 square feet in 100 units. The council is hopeful the facility will spark other development in the area, according to the source.
The property owners successfully subdivided the lot into three sections earlier this year in preparation for their self-storage proposal, the source reported. The storage structures will each be 300 feet long and built on a 2.2-acre lot. It will be across from a Veterans of Foreign Wars building.
Improvements to North Carolina Highway 49 between Richfield and Mount Pleasant, N.C., and a widening of the highway near Asheboro, N.C., have the council hopeful the self-storage project will spur further development. “Maybe we’ll see something else soon,” councilmember Jim Misenheimer said during the meeting.
Richfield is a small town between Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C. Its population totaled 613 in 2010, according to U.S. Census figures.
