Brightwork Real Estate, a Florida-based development and acquisition company, plans to build a self-storage facility next to a Wawa gas station and convenience store it’s developing in Jacksonville, Fla. The company filed plans with the St. Johns River Water Management District to construct a three-story self-storage building comprising 101,100 square feet of space at 5017 Philips Highway, according to the source.
The parcel formerly housed an auto dealership. BW Philips Bowden LLC, led by Brightwork, purchased the 3.9 property in May for $2.25 million. The seller was Franklin G. Griffin, a trustee of the Franklin G. Griffin Revocable Living Trust, the source reported.
The storage facility will be built on 1.79 acres, just east of the gas station. Bohler Engineering is the civil engineer on the project.
Based in Tampa, Fla., Brightwork specializes in the development of commercial properties for its own account as well as private and corporate clients. The company is led by Brad Douglas, Henry Hilsman and Austin Simmons.
