    Sounds like NYC politics as usual.

    The market says "yes, we need more of a certain industry (self-storage) here--there is unmet demand." 

    The central planners say "we don't care, we want more manufacturing jobs--that's what WE demand."

    We'll see how this turns out.

    It doesn't look good for new facilities still in the planning stages.
    Current stores may enjoy a "monopolist-like advantage in setting rental prices."

    We had a store in Plantation, Florida that was pretty outdated as it was one of the oldest in town BUT because the city refused to give permits to any new storage facilities the few which were up and going got to have some pretty high prices compared to nearby cities.
