Description: Proposed for a fully developed 23.85 acre site is the redevelopment of a former Government Office Complex into a U-Haul Smart Mobility Center, which will include general Activity Center uses, research/innovation incubation, storage facilities, vehicle sharing, alternative fuel, and bicycle sales and service. The property contains a total of 300,975 SF of building floor area and the applicant is requesting up to 596,725 SF. The property is currently zoned High Activity Center, however, the request to convert this site to PUD zoning would allow for warehouse uses on the property. U-HAUL proposes to build up to 150,000 SF of self-storage space in combination with the proposed Smart Mobility showroom which will showcase products and prototypes that deploy smart technologies in mobility innovation. Other components of the project include a Research/Innovation Incubator (up to 85,000 SF), a bicycle sales (share) and service facility (up to 23,000 SF), FORD Chariot Ride Share facility up to 23,000 SF. There are over 980 parking spaces currently on the site. Parking will be reduced due to utilization for staging U-HAUL vehicles and products and green space additions.
Also, U-Haul has proposed a three-story climate controlled facility on three parcels across from Lively on Appleyard Drive. I think I may have mentioned this in another thread but I haven't noticed a thread about it yet. Its 817 Appleyard Drive and included parcels 21-28-51 C0010, C-0020 & C-0040 if you want to look it up and do a page for it.
Yes, I've noticed this also. Been tracking it a while trying to figure out what these modular storage buildings are and whether or not to consider them a component of the real estate. I'd like to see where this Smart Mobility Center thing goes because it's hard to believe such a huge complex like what's proposed here and the current U-HAUL on W. Tennessee Street (Skyline) at the Honda dealership AND one at TCC all need to be so close. I've seen the for sale sign near the Skyline location for some time and perhaps they are looking to move away from there given the value of that land has increased. I'll keep watch for sure... Do you think a project page is needed?
This thread will probably suffice for both, but if you would like another page for it, go ahead.
In regards to what you said above about the Skyline location, the submission info for the new facility says it will be a "satellite" facility operated from main one at 2201 W. Tennessee Street. I thought they would be moving completely too, but it looks like that may not be the plan. If I hear more, I'll add to this thread.
