Bouyea Bakery building finds new use

PLATTSBURGH — The former Bouyea Bakery building will soon reopen as a climate-controlled self- storage facility.

Lucenda Self-Storage co-owner Pierre Tremblay said he hopes to open for business Nov. 1.

Already, 125 storage units have been installed in the building's main level. An additional 75 units are expected to be built in the basement sometime in November.


Lori and Mark Allen of Lee Custom Homes II will be the managers.

"We started to renovate this for Pierre in March," Mrs. Allen said.

She said Tremblay, being a visionary, decided the best way to market the building would be by locating a successful business in it. He researched the climate-controlled self-storage idea at a trade show last year.

The installed storage units were purchased from a company in Florida, which delivered them by tractor trailer and put them in.

The temperature in the storage units will be kept at 50 degrees or higher in winter, Mrs. Allen said, and 80 degrees or lower in summer.

Units range from 5 feet by 5 feet to 10 feet by 20 feet. The first-floor units are 8 feet high, while those in the basement will be 7 feet high.

The former warehouse area is being used to store motor homes, boats and cars for this year. Room exists for another 115 storage units there, if there's demand, Mrs. Allen said.


Customers will have 24-hour access to their space seven days a week, with a private access code to enter the building.
