Town of Hempstead Board of Appeals Approves Special Use Permit for Self-Storage Facility in Oceanside
UNIONDALE, NEW YORK — Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC has announced that Christian Browne, a Partner with the Firm, successfully represented LSC Development, LLC before the Town of Hempstead Board of Appeals in obtaining a special use permit for the construction of a self-storage facility, located at 2525 Long Beach Road in Oceanside.
The two-story building — formerly the site of a commercial laundry facility — will be renovated, converting the space into 716 storage units with approximately 42,252 square feet. The existing parking lot on the property will continue to be used in connection with the business, so no variances for parking were needed. The Board of Appeals granted the permit on October 12.
Mr. Browne said that, when the laundry’s operations took place, commercial trucks entering and exiting the premises caused congestion on Long Beach Road and neighbors who lived nearby complained of the noise from the vehicles and the smell of the chemicals used in the laundering process. He said the new self-storage facility will be a more harmonious use, with fewer cars coming in and out of the property and traveling along the main road. In addition, he said, the property will be remediated.
“This new project is a home run for the developers and the community,” Mr. Browne said. “It will reduce the amount of traffic in front of the facility along Long Beach Road and the impacts on the neighbors. The building will be repurposed, so it won’t be torn down and it won’t place any further encumbrances on the residents.”
