Plans for a mixed-use self-storage complex were approved this week by the Bentonville, Ark., Planning Commission. BOS Park will be developed in two phases on 12.26 acres at Greenhouse Road and Southwest Airport Regional Boulevard. Phase one will be built on 8 acres and comprise 87,982 square feet of office, retail and storage space, according to the source.
The bulk of phase one will be dedicated to climate-controlled units, encompassing 51,352 square feet. The project will also include 11,620 square feet of traditional self-storage space, 14,850 square feet for vehicle storage and a 10,160-square-foot retail and office space.
The street-facing portions of the development will have decorative features including board and batten cement siding, brick veneer, and pattern and textured stucco, according to Jorge DuQuesne, engineering manager for Blew & Associates P.A. The second phase of the project will include similar features and connect the development to Morning Star Road, DuQuesne said.
The project was supported by city officials as part of the municipality’s ongoing effort to bring retail and service businesses to the southwest portion of town. "It helps the municipality from a traffic standpoint because it allows shorter trips in much closer proximity to where people live and gain access to services," Troy Galloway, the city’s economic and community development director, told the source.
