Zoning amendment gives self-storage companies another option

Pity the poor self-storage operators. Nobody wants them. So on February 1, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors agreed to revise the authorized uses in the Township’s Transitional Light Industrial zone around Progress Avenue to allow for the placement of self-storage units, now designated as “mini-warehouses.” One of the earlier sticking points with siting self-storage companies had been that their architecture – typically single-story buildings with a row of garage doors along one side – was not a particularly attractive sight in most zoning districts. More recently, their designs have evolved into office-type structures with internal as well as external storage access – designs which are more compatible with neighboring buildings and capable of eventually being re-purposed.
