Self-storage company DealPoint Merrill in Woodland Hills recently closed on the purchase of Centennial Plaza, a shopping plaza centrally located in Meriden, Conn., and plans to renovate the center.

The 11-acre, 158,000-square-foot plaza on Main Street has been the subject of ongoing resident concern since the anchor Stop & Shop closed at the end of 2020, according to the Record Journal, a local publication. Following the acquisition, a $5.2 million construction renovation is expected to commence in July 2021, according to a DealPoint Merrill statement. 

While other grocery story options were explored to fill the vacancy, a storage facility was approved in the empty space earlier this year after DealPoint Merrill submitted a zoning variance request. The zoning board conditionally approved DealPoint Merrill’s request to develop the storage space, provided there will be no storage of vehicles, boats or other outdoor storage on the property and no repair of vehicles.
