Following news that a 1,600-unit self-storage facility would be coming to 163 6th Street, in Gowanus, Storage Deluxe recently filed official applications for a five-story, 76,460-square-foot structure at the site. The facility, which will be operated by CubeSmart, will feature four loading berths, three off-street parking spaces, an accessory office component, and five floors of storage units. Virginia-based Butz • Wilbern, Ltd., is the applicant of record. The 125-foot-wide, 38,125-square-foot property is currently occupied by a metal salvage business. Demolition permits were filed to raze the business’s two-story office building and metal shed in May. The site is located five blocks from the Fourth Avenue/Ninth Street stop on the F, G, and R trains.
