North Carolina real estate developer The Carroll Cos. is breaking ground on a self-storage and wine-storage facility in the Wakefield neighborhood of Raleigh, N.C. The new Bee Safe Storage and Wine Cellar, located on New Falls of Neuse Road in the community of Maystone at Wakefield, is expected to open later this year. It is the company’s first storage facility in the area.
The three-story building with a modern brick façade will include 280 units for traditional self-storage and nearly 60 climate- and humidity-controlled units for wine storage. Staff will accept wine deliveries on behalf of traveling customers.
Carroll Cos. has also been busy building apartment communities in “the Triangle,” aka The Research Triangle, an eight-county region anchored by several of the state’s universities, the cities of Durham and Raleigh, and the towns of Cary and Chapel Hill. The company is in the process of building five multi-family projects in the area valued at more than $200 million, according to the source.
Carroll Cos. currently operates one Bee Safe Storage facility in Greensboro, N.C., and is planning to build five new Bee Safe sites in the Triangle over the next 18 months, company president Roy Carroll told the source. The existing facility offers climate control, wine storage, packing and moving supplies, free use of moving truck at move-in, acceptance of business deliveries, recorded video surveillance, shipping and postal services, a loading dock, and covered unloading zones.
Roy Carroll is the founder, CEO and chairman of Carroll Cos., one of North Carolina’s largest owners of multi-family properties. Known for its luxury single- and multi-family developments and mixed-use urban centers, the company has branched into industrial, commercial and office developments, including self-storage.
Several years ago, the company started “Building an End to Diabetes,” an ongoing benefit program committed to diabetes research. Since its launch, the campaign has donated more than $600,000 to the cause, raised through new-home sale proceeds. Carroll and his team are working to package the program so other U.S. builders can participate.
The Carroll Cos. includes Alaris Homes, which builds single-family residences; Carroll Campus Development, which builds campuses; Carroll Commercial Construction Co., specializing in commercial construction; Carroll Investment Properties, which builds multi-family homes; Carrolland Corp., a land-development company; CIP Construction Co., specializing in residential construction; RE Carroll Management Co., which manages properties; and Park View Development Corp., which builds luxury homes.
