Another self-storage facility planned for Westbard area of Bethesda
This is behind the McDonald's, and adjacent to the Crown Castle telecommunications tower and former Channel 20 studios. The property is currently improved with auto repair facilities. Demand for self-storage has been high in the 20816 zip code, due partly to the large number of single-family homes being torn down and redeveloped into larger ones.
A public meeting has been scheduled about the development - but here's the rub: It is scheduled concurrent with Equity One/Regency Centers' public meeting about their submission for their 22-acre Westwood Complex properties up the hill from this site. The self-storage meeting is Tuesday, November 29, from 6:30-7:30 PM at Westland Middle School at 5511 Massachusetts Avenue; the Equity One meeting starts at 7:00 PM at The Ballroom on Landy Lane.
Bad timing - it's going to be difficult for residents to attend both.
