Compass Self Storage, a member of the Amsdell family of companies, is seeking zoning approval to build a new facility in Jupiter, Fla. The proposal is for a 7-acre vacant property on the southeast corner of Frederick Small Road and Sweet Bay Circle, in the Abacoa neighborhood. The planning and zoning commission will consider the plans on Feb. 13, according to the source.
The facility would contain several buildings, including a three-story structure. They would comprise 150,000 square feet of storage space in 800 units, some of which will be climate-controlled. The site would also include 14 parking spaces. The L-shaped property is owned by Workplace Florida Ltd., the source reported.
The town council turned down a similar plan for the same parcel two years ago, the source reported. It’ll consider the Compass proposal on April 17.
In January, the council approved a similar project from Pinnacle Storage LLC. The company plans to build a three-story property comprising 98,000 square feet of space in 700 units.
Compass completed 13 acquisitions and developments last year, according to company officials. Most recently, it purchased McDonough-Henry Self-Storage in McDonough, Ga.
Headquartered in Cleveland, the Amsdell Cos. draws its roots from the family-owned construction company founded in 1928. Since its inception, the company has been active in several billions of dollars of real estate ventures, with a primary focus on self-storage. It has owned and operated more than 500 storage centers under various trade names in more than 27 states. It currently owns and operates properties in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.
