Final details for the design of a self-storage facility along Gavilan Peak Parkway were approved by Anthem Community Council at its monthly meeting July 26.
The east-side storage facility, called Anthem Self Storage, was approved in 2009, said Jenna Kohl, Anthem Community Executive Officer. The project did not proceed until recently, when the ground was graded and the property fenced.
The facility will sit on 7.5 acres north of Cross of Christ Church and south of Boulder Creek High School. Plans call for more than 700 storage units and more than 50 outdoor RV spaces. The two-story building will be visible from Gavilan Peak Parkway, according to council staff.

Some residents had expressed concern about the project, Kohl said, but council had only to approve final design details and was not in a position to alter the project significantly or stop it without risking possible legal repercussions, the board’s legal counsel advised during the meeting.
Anthem Self Storage is owned by George H. Bell, according to ACC documents.
