Storage Deluxe is planning to develop a 1,600-unit self-storage facility at 163 6th Street, in Gowanus, located five blocks from the 9th Street-Fourth Avenue stop on the F/G/R trains. CubeSmart will be operating the facility. The developer ground-leased the 38,125-square-foot property earlier this year in a $10 million deal, DNAinfo reports. Since the site is located within an M1-2 district, the site could accommodate up to 76,250 square feet of commercial or industrial space. Sixth Street Iron & Metal currently conducts their business out of a 4,000 square-foot warehouse on the site, and is planning to move across the street. Demolition permits and new buildings applications have not been filed yet.
