Gables Edge Parks Co., a South Miami-based real estate company, filed an application with Miami-Dade County on Oct. 7 to construct a five-story self-storage facility in Coral Gables, Fla., on behalf of self-storage real estate investment trust CubeSmart. The property will comprise 73,224 square feet of storage space.
The 0.8-acre lot at 4250 S.W. 8th St. is a former trailer park between Coral Gables and Miami’s West Flagler neighborhood, according to the source. The parcel is on a busy road that leads through Little Havana to the Brickell financial district, in what is considered a population-growth area
Gables Edge Parks is owned by Zaedy R. Pozo, Andres F. Rodriguez and Andres J. Rodriguez, the source reported. The development application, however, was listed under Self Storage Associates Inc., which is owned by Richard Beavers of Beaver Realty LLC, based in Winter Garden, Fla.
