Self-storage development eyed for Berlin Turnpike

Contributed 2176 & 2180 Berlin Turnpike

A developer has submitted plans for a three-story, 99,300-square-foot self-storage facility at 2176 & 2180 Berlin Turnpike on the Newington-Wethersfield town line. 

The application was submitted to the Wethersfield Inland Wetlands agency in early October by Robert Pryor, director of engineering for Solli Engineering LLC on behalf of applicant BDC Holdings based out of White Plains, N.Y.

The wetlands agency is hosting a public hearing on the application.

BDC Holdings has expressed interest to buy the property from owners Priscilla Turgeon, Laura Ricci, et al & Barbara Turgeon, et al.

The proposed development site consists of two parcels on roughly 11 acres, 7.6 of them in Wethersfield, located just south of the Route 175/ Berlin Turnpike interchange.

The front portion and proposed entrance to the site sits in Newington.

The property currently features an abandoned residence and is largely composed of woods and wetland area, according to an engineering report submitted with the application.

The development would include a storage rental office, 10,000 square feet of outdoor storage, parking areas, drives and landscaping.

According to the application, the project needs wetlands review for grading and drainage work, general construction, landscape and lighting, wetland buffer plantings and other activities upland of the onsite wetland area. 

“There will be no direct wetland impact as a result of this project,” the application reads.
