Adams Property Group LLC, which operates eight facilities in South Carolina, is seeking to convert a Farm Fresh grocery store in Williamsburg, Va., that closed earlier this month to self storage. The York County Planning Commission will vote on Nov. 8 whether to recommend the proposal to the board of supervisors, according to the source.
The 7.34-acre property at 455 Merrimac Trail is in the Shoppes at Merrimac Center near State Route 143. The plans include transforming the 63,000-square-foot building into interior climate-controlled space. An additional 30,000 square feet of storage would be added via a mezzanine level, the source stated. The site would feature a keypad-controlled gate and perimeter fencing, with the entrance on the side of the building.
The exterior of the remaining retails shops in the center would also receive minor upgrades. A gas station on the property would be demolished to make room for parking. In its proposal, Adams also indicated the Farm Fresh parking lot could be used for future retail shops, the source stated.
Based in South Carolina, Adams operates seven Monster Self Storage facilities and one B&H Self Storage in the state. The real estate investment firm also develops, manages and owns multi-tenant retail shopping centers in Georgia and South Carolina.
