Self-storage lender and investment firm Jernigan Capital continues to prime the pump for a number of storage projects in June, including $10.8 million for the construction of a 993-unit facility at 1835 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore, MD. The developer, an Annapolis-based 1834 Washington Self-Storage, expects to start construction in the third quarter of 2017 for a second quarter 2018 opening.

More recently, on July 5th, Jernigan Capital announced that it had invested $49.7 in to three different development projects, each of which will operate as CubeSmart facilities:

  • $26.5 million for a 40,593 net-rentable-square-foot, 1,424-unit multi-story climate controlled facility at 465 W. 150th Street in Upper Manhattan. Developer Mequity LLC of Atlanta, GA will convert the facility from an existing building.
  • $14.1 million for a proposed 93,738-square-foot, 951-unit multi-story primarily climate controlled facility on Boston Post Road in the Boston MSA. Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2017 and be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2018. The developer Marlboro Storage Members, based in Newton, MA, is partnering with Jernigan for the first time to develop the facility.
  • $9.1 for a proposed multi-story climate-controlled, 758-unit facility in Knoxville, TN located on Kingston Highway at the West Hills Interchange. Construction is expected to begin immediately and be completed in the second quarter of 2018. Pamlico Investments, LLC of Charlotte, NC, is the developer of the proposed project. This is the fifth development project in which The Company and Pamlico have co-invested.

Jernigan has closed 19 investments in new self-storage projects for an aggregate commitment amount of $236.0 million so far this year, the company said.
