A joint venture between Live Oak Capital Partners, Lumpkin Development and MacArthur Holdings LLC will soon break ground on a 97,000-square-foot self-storage facility at 2625 Atlanta Highway in Athens, Ga. The property will include a three-story, 84,000-square-foot, climate-controlled building and 13,000 square feet of drive-up storage. In total, it’ll comprise more than 740 units. The property is expected to open next spring, according to a press release.
The site is near downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. “We are thrilled to be bringing this best-in-class storage facility to The Classic City,” said Brooks Lumpkin, owner of Lumpkin Development. “This will be the largest and closest class-A storage property to the booming downtown, and we believe it will be the largest, nicest and most accessible property in Athens-Clarke County.”
