Storage Facility Under Consideration in Tavistock

A 40-foot-high self-storage facility could be coming to Leesburg’s Tavistock Farms neighborhood.

Right Away Storage is proposing a 105,500-square-foot building at the intersection of Tavistock Drive and Sycolin Road. The applicant has attempted to make the self-storage facility take on more of an “office-like” appearance due to its proximity to the neighborhood, project manager Scott Parker said. A special exception is needed to develop the self-storage facility on the site.

Parker noted the strides the applicant had made in the year since first submitting an application in what he called a “collaborative effort” between the company and town staff. Right Away Storage’s first submittal was returned with 90 comments from staff, which is high, he noted.

“We had a lot of problems with this application when it first came in,” Parker said.

But fast forward a year, the staff has no remaining concerns and is recommending approval.

Planning commissioners also gave a vote of confidence to the project Thursday night, unanimously recommending approval. The application now moves on to the Town Council, which has final approval authority.
