Planning Development Inc. will break ground next month on Carl’s White Glove Personal Storage & Wine Vault in Naples, Fla., offering wine storage in addition to self-storage. The three-story building at 11201 U.S. 41 E. will comprise 90,972 square feet of climate-controlled storage, with 4,000 square feet dedicated to the wine vault. The project is slated to be complete by the end of the year, according to the source.
MHK Architecture & Planning designed the facility, while Gates Construction will be the general contractor.
The wine-storage area will include a back-up generator to maintain temperature and humidity during a power outage. Services will include inventory management and market valuation of collections as well as package pickup, delivery and acceptance. The number of units and sizes have yet to be determined, the source reported.
“Fine wines have quickly become one of Americans’ highest value asset classes. We are dedicated to treating our clients’ prized wine collections and inventories as if it were our own,” said Rachel Keller, a representative of Planning Development.
The project is Planning Development’s first storage venture. The company consulted with wine expert Bruce Nichols, who recently opened The Wine Store on Central Avenue in Downtown Naples. The 23 temperature-controlled wine lockers at his facility, which caters to private collectors, were leased shortly after the property opened, with most tenants signing annual contracts, according to the source.
Planning Development is one of several companies building new facilities in the region. Self-storage developers have submitted proposals for at least 10 projects in Collier County, Fla., since 2016.
Based in Naples, Planning Development has been in the Florida real estate business for more than 30 years.
