TownOnline.com - Local News: Storage meeting packs a crowd
A self-storage facility proposed for 156 Lincoln St. brought neighbors out in force to a Wednesday night Boston Redevelopment Authority meeting. Opponents called the storage units 'lifeless' and 'tin shacks,' while proponents argued the business would bring little traffic or noise to the neighborhood.
The proposed facility would be four stories high and include 850 to 900 storage units, ranging in size from closet- to garage-sized units.
'Self-storage is not the kind of building where people jump up immediately and say, 'Thank God you came',' said George Bachrach who would like to buy the Lincoln Street lot and erect a Public Storage building.
