MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- With hard hats in place and shovels in hand, local officials helped Sean and Chris Murphy break ground for their latest venture, Mamaroneck Self-Storage.
Responding to a community need for additional storage space due to the buying and selling of homes, downsizing and the cost of office space, Mamaroneck Self-Storage is a state-of-the-art 40,000-square-foot self-storage facility in the village of Mamaroneck, convenient to and from any part of the county.
“We’ve been planning this facility for five years,” said Sean Murphy, “and we’re working with (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) and Steven Winter Associates to make this a green building, featuring DOW Powerhouse Solar Shingles.”
“The Murphy Brothers understand what it takes to start a family-owned business and to recruit and retain a workforce in our county,'' said John Ravitz, vice president of the Westchester Business Council. "As their footprint grows in Westchester, the Business Council is delighted to champion their success.
Joining the celebration were State Assemblyman Steven Otis (D-Rye); Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Norman Rosenblum; Village Trustees Louis Santoro and Andres Bermudez-Hallstrom; Hudson Valley Bank’s Rose Silvestro, also representing the Village of Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce; County Director of Economic Development Bill Mooney; and Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett. Building architect Kim Martelli also attended the groundbreaking.
Mamaroneck Self-Storage is located at 416 Waverly Ave. in Mamaroneck and should be in full operation by Labor Day weekend 2015.
Murphy Brothers Contracting is owned and operated by brothers and partners, Christopher and Sean Murphy. It is celebrating 35 years in the construction business.
