The Georgetown City Council approved the first readings for two special-use permits in regards to self-storage units at its July 12 meeting.

One center is proposed at 1301 NE Inner Loop, Georgetown, on 7.31 acres, and the other is at 2701 E. University Ave., Georgetown, on 3.42 acres.

The University site will include 8,495 square feet of rentable commercial space in addition to the three-story indoor self-storage building that will be approximately 120,060 square feet in size.

The proposed plan at NE Inner Loop conceptualizes a three-story building utilized for indoor self-storage with 128,100 square feet across the three floors.

The site’s primary use is outdoor self-storage with four existing one-story buildings.

In 2017, a one-story building in the same location and with the same building footprint at this location was approved with the initial special-use permit for the outdoor self-storage use.

Because of the existing permit, the request is an amendment to the 2017 approved permit's conceptual plan.

The change the applicant is proposing is to construct a three-story building rather than the single-story building approved in 2017.

Both site plans have been designed by Mauldin Architects.

Both properties will also have to be approved in a second consensual reading.

Design and construction are slated for later this year.
