A self storage facility is planned for the area between Superior Pawn and the State Farm office.
A three story self storage facility is planned for 801 W. Little Creek Road between Superior Pawn & Gun and the State Farm insurance office. The site is directly across W. Little Creek Road from the 7-11.
A storage facility is permitted by right at that location so no rezonings or approvals by the Planning Commission or City Council will be required.
A proposed site plan, subject to change, is attached here (PDF).

‘Evenings’ at Starbucks is coming to Wards Corner. Starbucks Evenings is a fairly new concept that Starbucks has been testing and now expanding across the country.
Our Starbucks Evenings menu features a thoughtful selection of wine and craft beer alongside the signature coffee and tea beverages you know and love. Enjoy one of our savory small plates – whether it’s our creamy Truffle Mac & Cheese or a delicious flatbread.
So take a moment to unwind, meet up with friends and enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious little something—with us. – Starbucks Evenings website
According to their special exception application filed with the City, beer and wine sales are to be 2pm – 10pm Monday – Friday, noon – 10pm Saturday, and noon – 9pm on Sundays. No entertainment or live music is being proposed.
