Morningstar Self Storage

April 11, 2023 | By Chesapeake Contracting Group | Recently Completed

Morningstar Self Storage is a new, 5-story, 148,000 SF storage building in Baltimore City. Located on Union Avenue, this 1,059 unit facility is a steel structure with a mix of EFIS and metal panel façade. Scope of work included existing building demolition, associated sitework and construction of the new space.

This historic site was home to the Schenuit Rubber Tire Factory in Woodberry, which manufactured tires for cars and trucks but was destroyed by fire in 1929. The site was also well-known for the Schenuit Rubber smokestack that could be seen from I-83. Now, this project serves as a landmark for the Woodberry historic district, with “Woodberry” painted alongside the building visible to Jones Fall Expressway.

CCG’s trade partners, ownership team and design professionals worked tirelessly to bring a beautiful storage facility to the historic and growing area of Woodberry.
