A high tech looking sparkling glass building is rising six stories along Route 93 at Assembly Square in Somerville, MA. What is it? An office building? Apartment complex? No, it is a new state-of-the-art self storage facility with a restaurant, bike storage area, and community room located on the public plaza at the gateway to Assembly Square.
Opening in late June, the 50 Middlesex Avenue location is clearly visible from Interstate 93 and is
an impressive addition to the Somerville skyline. The six story gleaming structure features state-of-
the-art security, a secure drive-in area great for personal and business use, oversized elevators,
and climate controlled storage units. The building will also be silver LEED equivalent. LEED
(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based, market¬-driven
program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. On the first floor will be Style Café,
featuring coffee drinks and fresh gourmet sandwiches & catering.

bicycle room and community conference room that can be used FREE of charge.
“Somerville is centrally located to serve anyone in transition and searching for safe, secure, Class A
storage,” noted Gerald Cohen, Manager of SSG Development, LLC. Cohen added, “People and
businesses in transition – down-sizing, relocating students, remodeling, new home purchases,
seasonal inventory, excess inventory – are creating great demand for state-of-the-art storage. We are
excited to meet that need and to exceed customers expectations with a facility that makes the
process financially feasible and stress-free.”
SSG Development made it a top priority to engage the local community groups, planning department
and the mayor’s office to ensure they were developing a facility that fit into the community’s vision.
“We welcomed and listened to the feedback of the local community. They know Somerville best and
helped us develop a better facility, one that will strengthen Somerville as a whole, and support future
growth at Assembly Square” said Dave Fulton, Chief Operating Officer at SSG Development.
