Five new storage facilities from small units to RVs now advancing
Plans for five new storage facilities in Manteca are now in various stages of the approval process.

There are now five storage facilities proposed for Manteca that are moving through the city approval process.

The latest three are:

*The Tesoro Boat and RV Storage project that will accommodate 532 recreational vehicles on a 13.68 acre triangle parcel bordering the north side of Woodward Avenue and located between Atherton Drive and Moffat Boulevard.

*A 393-unit mini-storage complex at 183 South Austin Road.

*An 844-unit storage facility at 2430 West Atherton Drive. When built, it will be the largest in the city.

Those three projects that are now in the environmental review process is in addition to Arco Storage on North Main Street just north of Northgate Drive that has gained approval for additional storage units on land immediately as well as a smaller facility approved on the west side of South Main Street.

The Tesoro Boat and RV Storage will be the largest of its kind in Manteca.

It will be a full service storage facility with an office building, vehicle cleaning station, vehicle dumping station as well as propane and air filling stations.

Access will be from Atherton Drive to the property that was most recently a truck terminal. Buildings on the site were demolished earlier this year.

What makes the project unique is what it could entail.

The applicant is exploring installing approximately 300,000 square feet of solar arrays within the project to supply power for the nearby City of Manteca water storage tank. The financial feasibility of the solar aspect is being explored and is being included as part of the project in the event it pencils out it could be built without further public review.

The Austin Road storage facility is being proposed by John Pinedo of Valley Springs. It consists of 48,170 square feet between 13 single story buildings on 2.76 acres.

Manteca’s largest self-storage complex yet is being proposed for 5.64 acres in southwest Manteca.

The site is at 2430 West Atherton Drive. That’s on the south side of where the four-lane arterial curves across from Sterling Homes modular housing showcase lot.

The complex will have nine buildings with 844 storage units as well as an office. Overall it will consist of 123,357 square feet or roughly the same floor space as the Manteca Target store.

It will be the city’s eighth self-storage complex and the first in southwest Manteca.

The proposed 884-unit storage facility will border a sound wall that separates it from homes to the south and west.

Currently Bella Terra Lane dead-ends into the parcel where the self-storage is proposed.

An access gate will block off the street at that point. Directly aligned with that access gate is the main entrance from Atherton Drive where the control gates will be located.

It will be required to have 27 parking spaces, three dedicated to clean air vehicles, two electric car charging stations.
