Uncle Bob’s Self Storage will expand a facility in Raleigh, N.C., replacing four single-story buildings with a three-story, 27,000-square-foot structure offering climate control. The current property at 2401 S. Wilmington St. is comprised of eight buildings varying in size from 1,800 to 2,625 square feet. When complete, the Wilmington facility will add nearly 21,000 net rentable square feet to a total capacity of 50,795 square feet, according to Diane Piegza, vice president of investor relations and community affairs. The project is scheduled to begin in March with a target completion date of November.
Four demolition permits were issued, covering each of the Wilmington Street address numbers associated with the property: 2403, 2405, 2407 and 2409, according to the source. The $20,000 demolition will be handled by McKenna Construction Co. Inc.
The Wilmington facility currently offers some climate control, along with vehicle storage, perimeter fencing, video cameras, truck rental and other amenities. The company has two other self-storage facilities in Raleigh.
Based in Buffalo, N.Y., the Uncle Bob’s brand is operated by real estate investment trust Sovran Self Storage Inc. The company operates more than 500 facilities in 26 states. Its portfolio of owned and managed facilities comprises more than 36 million square feet.
