The owner of a construction yard at 75 Stedman St., behind the Arborway bus depot, says he will soon file plans with the BPDA to replace the yard with a 120,000-square-foot self-storage building.
The proposal by Colm O'Shea would mean the second self-storage place in an area in which hundreds of residential units have replaced garages, construction yards and other commercial concerns in recent years.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA, a consultant on the project says its research makes it confident the "new, beautifully designed" self-storage building will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood, especially as it would replace what is now a construction yard.
The other self-storage place went up a few years ago as part of a development at Washington and McBride streets.
