More warehouses planned for Montgomery

Posted

Applicants for several new and pending warehouse projects appeared before the Town of Montgomery Planning Board last week.

Grunbaum Warehouses is seeking a special use permit and site plan approval for a 100,000 square foot warehouse at the intersection of Route 211 and East Kaisertown Road.

Representative Al Fusco told the planning board there would be 13 truck bays in the rear of the building, each at 7,500 square feet per unit, with ample employee parking in the front. While there would likely be a single user for the property, Fusco said the applicant does not have an end user at this time. He said the owner of the property has several other warehouses in the area that are leased out. This one, he added, is small by comparison to most of the pending warehouse projects.

As the property lies along a state road, it is expected that the New York State Department of Transportation will ask for a traffic study, while the planning board had questions about hours of operation and ambient noise coming from the site, the need for exterior lighting to be dark sky compliant and the need for aviation lights on the building, as it would be in the flight pattern of Orange County Airport. The applicant will prepare some answers for its next presentation.

“We’ll probably be at least a month out,” Fusco said.

Returning to the planning board is the development known as Autumn Sky on Route 208, this time with a prospective end user, a company that stores and distributes paper checks.

The applicant is adding a second loading dock to the site, but it was noted that there’s only room for one truck in the loading area at a time. The proposed building is steel, approximately 40 feet in height.

Rowley Development Corp. is seeking a two-lot commercial subdivision directly across from the Amazon warehouse site at Route 17K and Col. Foster Drive.

The first lot would house a 40,000 square-foot non intensive warehouse on 10 acres.

The second lot would house a 56,700 square-foot warehouse on 20 acres.

The site includes a large wetland area, as defined by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

At the present time, there are no end users identified for either warehouse.
