White Plains, NY – Yesterday Westy Self Storage announced the steel topping off at the expansion of their White Plains storage facility located at 179 Westmoreland Avenue. Just 5 months after breaking ground, this milestone marks the next phase of construction.
Topping off defines the placement of the final steel beam. This beam is the last of nearly 600 tons of structural steel that has been used to construct the new addition. The original building opened in November 2011 and within a year, an additional .57 acres were acquired in September 2012 bringing the total lot size to 1.56 acres.
This current expansion will add nearly 70,000 square feet to the existing building resulting in a net total of over 186,000 square feet providing Westy with almost 600 additional storage units.
Precast wall panel cladding will follow the final steel with an estimated project completion date at the end of this summer.
This project will allow Westy Self Storage to expand the exemplary service that they provide to their customers through state-of-the-art self storage solutions. Westy is the finest self storage in America, not just because of its functionality and security but because of the beauty of their buildings. As with all the Westy buildings, the White Plains location was built for permanence with design elements specifically chosen to create a special and inviting atmosphere for their customers – who of course are the most important component of Westy.
“I am very pleased to see that Westy is expanding their building. I have seen a significant increase in the cleanliness of the area ever since Westy came to the neighborhood,” said Maria Escobar, White Plains resident. “The Westy location in White Plains is very convenient. I have used other storage places before and they can’t compare to Westy.”
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to expand our current location,” said Edward Arredondo, Director of Development of Westy Self Storage. “The City of White Plains, as well as this particular location being so close to Scarsdale, has proven to be an excellent location for us. It is a privilege to have a Westy building in White Plains.”
