Do you want to live over a self-storage? Redondo Beach-based developer Trojan Storage wants to make that happen.
The company plans to include 27 residential units in a 200,000-square-foot development anchored by a self-storage facility at 13260 West Maclay Street in the San Fernando Valley district of Sylmar, according to a report from Urbanize citing urban planning documents.
The plans require that the storage units be surrounded by a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, all set at market price. The complex will also include 78 parking spaces.
Self-storage will take up about 150,000 square feet of space on the new complex, which will replace an existing 22-unit apartment complex.
Trojan Storage has 19 self-storage locations in California, according to its website. It also operates under the brands BA Self Storage, Fort Self Storage and Safe Self Storage. In LA, the company operates facilities at 14601 Sherman Way in Van Nuys and 1651 South Central Avenue in the Downtown area.
Trojan Storage also plans to build a self-storage facility at 14201 South Paxton Street in Arleta – also in the San Fernando Valley. It would be 167,000 square meters spread over three floors.
By 2020, Los Angeles attracted the largest investment in self-storage in the country with a total volume of $ 92 million, according to a March report from the storage entity’s website Storage Cafe. At the same time, the city is still struggling with a shortage of housing for its residents.
Sylmar has also become a popular place for industrial development. In October, Xebec Realty announced plans to build more than 600,000 square feet of industrial space across 28 acres of land on Roxford Street.
