CubeSmart, a Malvern, Pa., self-storage company, operates in the building. CubeSmart did not respond to telephone calls seeking comment, and a woman who operates the Pleasant Street location said she was not permitted to speak to the news media.
Online property records list the building’s owner as Tuck-It-Away Balt LLC, with a mailing address in Alexandria, Va. Efforts to reach a company representative Friday morning were not successful.
Tuck-It-Away Balt is not in good standing with the state Department of Assessments and Taxation. The entity was forfeited for failure to file a required annual personal property tax return in 2016, according to department spokeswoman Fallon Patton. That means its right to conduct business in Maryland has been relinquished and it has no right to use its name.
Across the state, at least four other people have died in workplace accidents since June.
