The Milton Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved final site plans for DEStorage to build a storage facility at the intersection of Route 16 and Palmer Street Extended.
The only condition of approval at the commission’s Sept. 19 meeting was that DEStorage, which maintains storage facilities throughout the state, must erect fencing that is not strand fencing or anti-deer-type fencing.
The DEStorage complex will comprise five structures: two 32,000-square-foot buildings and two 27,000-square-foot buildings, as well as an office building. The project will be built in two phases, with entry off Palmer Street Extended. Plans call for two stormwater management ponds, one at the front and another at the rear of the property. All four storage buildings will be two stories tall.
The DEStorage facility has been in the pipeline for more than a year, as DEStorage first had to annex a half-acre portion of the 7-acre parcel to make it contiguous. Preliminary site plans were approved in May.
The DEStorage facility is one of two storage facilities planned along Route 16 in Milton. A second, YourSpace Storage, is approved near the intersection of Route 16 and Union Street Extended. That complex will include two buildings: a main building of 109,000 square feet and three stories tall. The second building will be 2,400 square feet and one story. Plans call for two stormwater infiltration basins at the front and rear of the property. Building of the facility will also include sidewalks with crosswalks along Route 16 and shrubbery planted around edges of the complex to screen it from surrounding residential homes. The YourSpace project got final approval from planning and zoning in May.
