Self-storage with 844 units planned on Atherton Drive

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.

It also will be the fourth commercial venture along Atherton Drive designed to accommodate retail, office uses and higher density housing immediately south of the 120 Bypass.

The first is The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley anchored by JC Penney and Bass Pro Shops that opened in 2008.

The 116,641-square-foot Living Spaces furniture showroom is opening next week just west of Union Road. The company’s 28th location will stage a family and friends event Tuesday, June 8, with a soft opening on Wednesday, June 9. The grand opening is planned for Friday, June 11.

 Chevron is getting ready to break ground on a gas station, car wash, and 4,000-square-foot convenience store on the southwest corner of Union Road and Atherton Drive.

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.

The project will go before the Manteca Planning Commission on July 15.

Arco storage on North Main Street just north of Northgate Drive had a plan to add additional storage units on land immediately to the south approved earlier this year by the Manteca Planning Commission.
