The purpose of this request is to rezone an underutilized +/-5.2-acre site south and west of the southwest corner of 19th Avenue and Southern Avenue Road from R1-6 (Approved C-1*) to C-2 SP (Special Permit) to allow for the development of a self-storage facility. The property consists of two (2) parcels (APNs: 105-86-969A and 969B; the “Property”). The site is currently vacant and undeveloped. There is an existing QuikTrip on the hard corner of which the subject Property wraps around in an L Shape.
The developer of the proposed self-storage is the Platinum Construction, which has developed, operates and/or owns more than 30 storage facility sites in 8 states. Platinum Construction will own this facility. A survey of self-storage operations around the valley reveals that such operations come in varying degrees of quality and design. But Platinum Storage seeks to be at the top end of the self-storage market in this area by developing a class-A facility. In a time when retail and office developments are struggling to fill vacancies, a new commercial development along this corridor is welcomed.
The proposed facility will consist of an approximate 86,200 square-foot two-story, climate-controlled, interior self-storage building and approximately 39,200 square feet in one-story drive-up, exterior storage, separated between five buildings. The site will also include approximately 30 RV covered parking spaces, exterior parking, a loading/unloading area, and an office space, as well as required landscaping.
The proposed redevelopment is consistent with the existing and planned commercial corner. The development of the site including elevated architecture, sidewalks and landscaping will be a positive impact on the community, not to mention a great use that will be enjoyed by the residential neighborhood. This is an ideal location for neighborhood storage facility that is fully consistent with the area. This request provides a needed facility to this area and infills a property that is not only vacant now but could sit vacant for many years given the state of retail.
