The $5 million project will offer 750 temperature and humidity-controlled storage units on Turner Street.

Diamond Point Development and The Ardent Companies broke ground on a three-story, 100,000-square-foot self-storage facility at 179 Turner St. on three undeveloped plots next to the Dead River Company complex.

The more than $5 million project will be a standout in the Lewiston-Auburn market, offering 750 temperature and humidity-controlled storage units in one location. Developer Jason Sommer said their analysis showed that the Lewiston-Auburn market is “underserved” when it comes to climate-controlled, self-serve storage facilities.

The company has developed similar properties in Georgia, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts and one in South Portland.

The land is being cleared and opening is expected opening in March 2025, under either the CubeSmart Storage brand or Extra Space Storage brand name.
