A self-storage facility proposed for Mundelein's south side has been greenlit by the village board.

Big Door Garage Suites is planned for two acres of vacant land on Wilhelm Road west of Reidel Road. The owners have said it could be a storage center for classic cars, boats and recreational vehicles. The units also could be converted into offices, hobby spaces, art studios or leisure spaces.

The village board approved a special use permit for the business Monday without debate. Trustees publicly discussed the business proposal earlier this month and in May.

The permit was needed because the land is zoned for general manufacturing, not a storage business.

People traditionally rent self-storage units, but Big Door's spaces will be for sale. Thirty-five units are planned, ranging from 560 square feet to 1,500 square feet, according to documents.

Prices will start at $131,600, according to the company's website. The unit owners will pay property taxes on the spaces, just as residential condominium owners pay taxes.

Construction of the facility could take 10 months, documents indicate. A summer 2019 opening is planned.
