Self-storage real estate investment trust (REIT) Life Storage Inc. intends to expand its facility at 3154 Union Road in Cheektowaga, N.Y. The company wants to demolish two single-story buildings and replace them with a three-story, climate-controlled structure. The new building would nearly triple the business footprint from 5,918 to 14,400 square feet, according to the source.
“The proposed building will be constructed in an area which is currently building and pavement, and as such, there will be no increase in impervious area for drainage considerations,” said Timothy MacVittie, construction project manager, in the development-review application.
The project would expand the property’s climate-control offerings. The facility also offers acceptance of customer deliveries, moving and packing supplies, truck rentals, and vehicle storage. Features include 24-hour access, perimeter fencing and video cameras for security, according to the Life Storage website.
Based in Buffalo, N.Y., Life Storage operates more than 700 self-storage facilities in 28 states under the Life Storage and Uncle Bob’s brands. Its portfolio of owned and managed facilities comprises more than 50 million square feet.
