NitNeil Partners is gearing up to convert an historic landmark in Louisville, KY into a self-storage facility (pictured above). The Atlanta-based developer is teaming up with local businessmen Aaron Willis and Jack Howell to redevelop the 110,000-square-foot J.F. Kurfees Paint Building at 201 East Market Street. The building was constructed in 1915 in the influential Beaux-Arts style.

The facility is set to open summer 2016.

Under Construction

Issacson Family Enterprises has started construction on a new self-storage facility development at 200 East Arrowhead Drive in Montgomery, AL. The facility will operate under the name A Mini Flex Storage. The first phase of construction will deliver 30,000 square feet of climate controlled self-storage space in the spring of 2016. Two additional phases will eventually bring the facility to more than 600 total units. This project is Issacson’s first new self-storage project since 2006.
