Irene Stacy to become self-storage

June 22, 2018 News Extra

Todd Andrews cuts through supports to open up the wall as they are turning the old Irene Stacey building into Storage Facility in Butler Twp on Thursday June 21, 2018.

BUTLER TWP — The former Irene Stacy Mental Health Center has been sold to an attorney from Bridgeville, Allegheny County, who will remodel the property into a climate-controlled self-storage facility.

Nick Brenlove said on Thursday that he and his son, Eli, recently bought the building from NexTier Bank, who owned the building due to Irene Stacy's foreclosure and a subsequent sheriff's sale.

Renovations have started in the first phase of the project, which will see workers change offices into 28 storage units.

Brenlove said the units will be upscale because they will be carpeted and painted.

Other phases of the project on the 10-acre site will include building drive-up storage units on the property and adding outdoor spaces where cars, boats and recreational vehicles can be stored.

The gated property will be secured with electronic locks and cameras, Brenlove said.

Brenlove hopes to open the facility with hours of 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sept. 1.
