With hard-hats in place and shovels in hand, local officials helped Greenwich residents Sean and Chris Murphy recently to break ground for their latest service 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, N.Y.

“We’ve been planning this facility for five years,” said Sean Murphy. “And we’re working with NYSEDA and Steven Winter Associates (Norwalk) to make this a green building, featuring DOW Powerhouse Solar Shingles.”

John Ravitz, vice president of the Westchester Business Council, welcomed the group, saying “The Murphy Brothers understand what it takes to start a family-owned business and to recruit and retain a workforce in our county. As their footprint grows in the Westchester, the business council is delighted to champion their success.”

Joining the celebration were State Assemblyman Steven Otis, Mamaroneck Mayor Norman Rosenblum, Village Trustees Louis Santoro and Andres Bermudez-Hallstrom, Hudson Valley Bank’s Rose Silvestro, who also represented the Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce, County Director of Economic Development Bill Mooney and Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett.

Mr. Plunkett, noting Murphy Brothers’ 35 years in business, their involvement in sustainable building and community service, lauded the company as “an economic engine, committed to Westchester, giving back to the community.”

On behalf of County Executive Rob Astorino, Mr. Plunkett presented the brothers with a proclamation declaring Sept. 4, 2014 as “Murphy Brothers Contracting Recognition Day in Westchester County.”

The building’s architect Kim Martelli was also in attendance. Mamaroneck Self-Storage, at 416 Waverly Avenue, Mamaroneck, N.Y. should be in full operation by Labor Day weekend 2015.
