Grand River is owned by a British Columbia, Canada-based developer
March 13, 2019: Grand River Mini-Storage in Howell, Michigan., plans to expand this spring displacing two businesses that currently lease two buildings on its property. The owners have a plan to expand the property located at 2440 W. Grand River Ave, it may add a three-story, climate-controlled building containing 150 units.
Site renovations include relocating the self-storage management office to the building that’s currently occupied by party-supply store On the Go. The structure behind it, which houses Auto One Glass & Accessories, is the one that will be converted to storage.
“Grand River already offers 550 units, about 100 of which are climate-controlled. Our climate-controlled building is now full, so there is definitely a need in the community for that, and we’re just trying to meet that” Said by facility manager Julie Dye.
Sandeep Ghelani, owner of On the Go, and James Ron Overbeck, co-owner of Auto One, were informed of the upcoming project via a letter. Ghelani and Overbeck are working to secure a temporary location to keep the companies open until the new site is complete.
”The two have since joined forces to construct a new 7,100-square-foot building across the street. We're moving the business because they have other plans, and we wanted to stay close to where we are,” Said by James Ron Overbeck.
