The four-story structure will have 120,000 square feet of storage in 800 climate-controlled units and 18 “garage” spaces
December 222, 2017: The Stratford Zoning Commission has unanimously approved the self-storage component to the mixed-use project at 225 Lordship Blvd.
The developers must include a “Welcome to the Town of Stratford” sign on the property because the commission deems the location a gateway from Interstate 95, according to the source.
Other stipulations include images promoting Stratford on the exterior of the building and signage directing people to the Watson Boulevard entrance. The facility will be 55 feet tall, with a gated entrance and 24 parking spaces. It’s near an I-95 exit and the airport.
The entire project will be completed in three phases, according to Raymond Rizio, an attorney representing the developer. The first will be the $10 million apartment complex, which is expected to be complete next spring. It’ll incorporate part of the old hotel structure, the source reported.
The self-storage structure will serve as a visual buffer between the apartment building and multiple industrial uses in the vicinity, Rizio said. It isn’t clear when the storage facility is scheduled for construction.
