Highlands storage facility construction starts next month

April 13, 2010

By Staff

A developer plans to break ground on a self-storage facility near the Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride next month.

The facility will include 500 storage units, including 800 square feet of climate-controlled space for wine storage. Plans call for the facility to open next March.

The building will stand taller than surrounding buildings, including the transit lot. Other projects planned for the area (such as a movie theater) or under construction (YWCA Family Village at Issaquah) could help the storage facility blend in with surrounding structures. Crews broke ground last week on zHome, a collection of 10 townhouses designed to produce as much electricity as the units consume. The complex will be built on about a half-acre near the YWCA housing.

The developer said the design of the storage facility would include energy-saving features.

The storage facility will become the latest project under construction in the highlands, where the recession has slowed development. Highlands developer Port Blakely Communities seeks a new development partner in order to complete the retail vision for the highlands. The latest plan offered by the developer includes the storage facility, a grocery store, the movie theater and a gas station.
