That’s pretty big.

At its next meeting on Thursday, Aug. 5, the Garden Grove Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing on a request for a site plan approval for a six-story self-storage facility in West Garden Grove.

What’s proposed is to demolish an existing two-story building at the northwest corner of Chapman and Western avenues and replace it with a new 158,694-square foot building on a 1.26-acre site.

If approved, that would be one of the largest commercial buildings – hotels excepted – in the city and would rival the size of the Costco discount store in the downtown area.

What’s also requested is an interpretation of use to determine if the proposed self-storage use is compatible with the planned unit development zone in which it would be located.

Planners will meet in the Community Meeting Center at 7 p.m.
