A real estate and development firm has purchased a plot of land along the Berlin Turnpike in Wethersfield, Conn., with plans to build a self-storage facility with room for RV and boat storage.
The site, at 2180 Berlin Turnpike, was sold by the Turgeon/Spain families to BDC Holdings Inc. for $565,000 in a deal recorded Nov. 14.
Plans, which are currently before the Planning and Zoning Commission, call for an 84,920-square-foot self-storage facility at 2176-2180 Berlin Turnpike, on the Wethersfield, Newington border.
The property is nearly 12 acres of primarily vacant land in the Regional Commercial District, which is intended for large-scale business development.
The 11.94-acre parcel contains 3.75 acres of buildable land, with some wetlands in the area. The property contains one, two-story residential building.
BDC Holdings is based out of White Plains, N.Y.
The proposed development site consists of two parcels, with 7.6 acres in Wethersfield, located just south of the Route 175/Berlin Turnpike interchange along the routes 5 and 15 corridor.
The development would include a storage rental office, indoor and outdoor vehicle storage, parking areas, driveways and landscaping.
