DWD worked closely with Mountford Pigott Architects to secure planning permission, on behalf of Big Yellow Self Storage, for the redevelopment of 20 Cumberland Road in Queensbury to provide a five-storey self-storage facility and flexible office space. The scheme will provide 8,061 sqm of self-storage space and 139 sqm of flexible office space helping to revitalise the economic function of a Locally Significant Industrial Site.
The proposed self-storage facility will replace the tired and outdated buildings that exist, and will provide a layout that will maximise the utilisation of this brownfield site. The scale and massing responds to an emerging townscape context comprising new industrial/commercial buildings to the north and west, and a new residential neighbourhood to the south and east.
The facility will help to meet growing domestic and business storage needs, generate significant direct employment and provide a range of space for small and medium enterprises.
