Site work begins for new storage units in Estero and Ave Maria.
Southwest Floridians have a lot of stuff to store. And with more of them on the way to fill new neighborhoods, Fort Myers-based Seagate Development Group is one of the construction firms working to meet the demand for a little extra room.
Seagate is building three self-storage facilities in Fort Myers, Estero and Ave Maria. When complete, they will combine for more than 210,000 square feet of enclosed elbow room.
“With the constant growth happening in our area we are seeing an increased demand for facilities of this nature,” Seagate President and Partner Matt Price says in a statement. “Expanding our reach and expertise in the development of projects of this type position the company to better serve the needs of the community and help to grow our commercial footprint throughout Southwest Florida.”
Construction is underway at University Storage in Estero, which will include 90,000 square feet of climate-controlled indoor and drive-up exterior storage space. The three-story building will contain some 600 units in a combination of sizes plus 19 exterior drive-up units. The site, at 20091 Tiburon Way in Estero, is just south of the intersection of Bell Hill Griffin Parkway and Estero Parkway, will also feature security safeguards throughout the property.
With construction expected to begin in spring, Ave Maria Storage will offer 51,000 square feet of single story, climate-controlled indoor and exterior storage space in two buildings plus outdoor covered spaces available to accommodate Class A recreational vehicles.The facility is at 5306 Useppa Drive in Ave Maria, the new town under development in eastern Collier County, and is a joint venture with Ave Maria Development.
Scheduled for completion in February, Arbor Towne Storage in Fort Myers will have 76,000 square feet of rentable space and 654 units. It is at 10608 Colonial Blvd.
