The planning board Wednesday is expected to vote on a developer’s plan to build a self-storage facility next to the Fore River Bridge rotary in Quincy Point.

The board will meet at 7 p.m. at Old City Hall.

Jumbo Self Storage LLC, led by Jay and Howard Hirsh, has proposed building a 122,900-square-foot, self-storage facility on a 1.5-acre lot at 671 and 661-665 Washington St. The land is part of a larger boat storage yard just west of the rotary and north of the old shipyard.

Plans for the facility, which would ultimately be managed by a self-storage company, call for 1,062 storage containers, 12 parking spaces, new green space and a loading area.

The developer is seeking three special permits: one because it’s a major, non-residential use is being proposed; one for a parking waiver; and one for a sign waiver.
