The property has a total storage space of 69,000 square feet
October 30, 2018: A former supermarket in Gary could wind up and being converted into a storage unit. Midwest Self-Storage Development LLC planning to transform the 69,000-square-foot retail property on Ridge Road. The retail property includes a Menards home-improvement store and a few smaller businesses.
Todd Leeth, an attorney representing Midwest, recently stated “If approved, the self-storage facility would feature only indoor units. “You won’t see 50 or 60 garage doors all in a row; they’ll be indoors, with access to the premises controlled through a single entrance. We actually think those rows of garage doors are ugly. This will be better looking for the community." The project has been recommended for approval by the board of zoning appeals.
