Update 12/21/17 – Neighborhood Storage is nearing completion of its newest Ocala self-storage facility. While the property is expected to be ready in early 2018, the company is pursuing expansions at five other locations in the Ocala/Marion County area. The renovations will include covered boat/RV parking, climate control and drive-up units, and add about 100,000 rentable square feet to its portfolio, according to a press release.
“We are really looking forward to meeting the needs of the community with these expansions and our new facility,” Rudnianyn said.
6/2/17 – Neighborhood Storage recently broke ground on a new facility in Ocala, Fla., along U.S. Route 27. Once complete, it will be one of the operator’s largest sites, covering more than 6 acres, according to a press release.
The facility will comprise 40,000 square feet of climate-controlled and drive-up units as well as 47 vehicle-storage parking spaces. Future phases will contain nearly 70,000 square feet of storage space. Property amenities will include 24-hour access and video cameras.
“We are excited to announce the construction of our first facility in the rapidly growing Highway 27 corridor,” Rudnianyn said. “This location is reaching a growing market with new homes and businesses popping up every day.”
5/22/17 – Neighborhood Storage Center has again expanded its Maricamp Road facility in Ocala, Fla., by adding a building. The new structure comprises 12,000 square feet of storage space in 80 climate-controlled and drive-up units.
“We are excited to grow with the community in Silver Springs Shores. Over the past several years, this community has seen the addition of numerous amenities, retailers and restaurants that have made it a more dynamic and cohesive community,” Rudnianyn said. “This facility expansion adds to Neighborhood Storage’s existing footprint of three facilities that specifically cater to the needs of the Silver Spring Shores market.”
6/23/2015 – Neighborhood Storage, a self-storage operator with 19 locations in North-Central Florida, has enlarged its facility in Ocala, Fla., in the Silver Springs Shores community, a small residential area of Marion County. The expansion at 7400 S.E. Maricamp Road began in March and was completed earlier this month by Owen Construction Inc., an Ocala-based residential and commercial builder. It included the addition of 12,000 square feet of storage space in a range of unit sizes, from 25 to 250 square feet, according to a company press release.
The project was spurred by the lack of climate-controlled storage in the market, according to Todd Rudnianyn, president of Neighborhood Storage. “We needed to meet demand for particular non-temperature-controlled units that the original construction of the site did not have,” he said. “We are excited to be the first self-storage company to bring temperature-controlled units to the heart of the Silver Springs Shores community.”
The exterior lighting system was also upgraded with energy-efficient LED fixtures. Plans are now underway to improve the self-service customer center, which features 24/7 rental and payment options. The property also offers exterior units with drive-up access. Security features include computer-controlled gate access, individual access codes and video cameras.
In December, the storage operator began expansion of another facility it owns, also in Ocala. It was the second renovation for the property at 310 N.E. 25th Ave. The two new buildings include interior, temperature-controlled units as well as exterior units with drive-up access.
Neighborhood Storage operates facilities in Belleview, Dunnellon, Marion and Ocala County, Fla.
