A new mini storage facility on Asheville Highway was given the thumbs up Thursday by Hendersonville City Council members.
This will be the fourth location in Henderson County for Eagle Self Storage, whose owners say demand is increasing locally for storage units.
The council unanimously approved a conditional rezoning request from B&G Enterprises LLC and Larry Holbert for the development of a 99,480 square-foot mini storage facility that will include seven buildings and two covered storage areas.
The project required a conditional rezoning due to the floor area exceeding 50,000 square feet.
The property currently contains a used car lot on the front of the property, while most the land is vacant.
The first Eagle Self Storage facility opened 16 years ago on Spartanburg Highway in East Flat Rock. The other locations are at South Allen Road in Flat Rock and Airport Road in Hendersonville. The new building will be at 2310 Asheville Highway in Hendersonville. The owners say demand for short space has created waitlists at their other locations.
No comments or questions were presented by the public during a neighborhood compatibility meeting on the project in February.
The development was proposed around the same time another storage facility rezoning was submitted for Signal Hill Road. The council rejected that rezoning request Thursday.
