Big Door Garage Suites has been proposed as a storage center for classic cars, boats and recreational vehicles. But the units also could be converted into offices, hobby spaces, art studios or leisure spaces.
The facility is planned for 2 acres of vacant land on Wilhelm Road west of Reidel Road, on Mundelein’s south side.
People traditionally rent self-storage units, but Big Door’s spaces will be for sale.
Thirty-five units are planned, ranging from 560 square feet to 1,500 square feet, according to documents.
Prices will start at $131,600, according to the company’s website. The unit owners will pay property taxes on the spaces, just as residential condominium owners pay taxes.
Each unit will be individually climate-controlled and could have water, electricity, internet access and other amenities. Residential usage will not be allowed.
“Owners are able to purchase a unit and customize the space to their specific needs,” company principal Dave Miller said. “(It’s) a truly unique storage option.”
