Update 7/31/17 – Jernigan Capital has co-invested in a third self-storage project with Structure Development, committing $8 million toward a proposed multi-story facility in Jacksonville, Fla. The asset would comprise 68,700 square feet in 749 climate-controlled units on Edison Avenue, about a half-mile from downtown. Construction is expected to begin during the fourth quarter and be complete in about a year, according to a press release.
The property is less than a mile from Brooklyn Station, a new retail and dining area, and is close to several recently developed upscale apartment complexes. It’s visible from Interstates 10 and 95.
Jernigan Capital also announced that three of its earlier self-storage co-investments have opened for business. Two of the assets are also in Florida, with one in Pittsburgh, Pa. A project in Ocoee, Fla., added 287 units to its existing site, while another Jacksonville project was a 787-unit multi-story facility. The latter is through Storage Partners LLC, a joint venture with real estate investment firm Heitman Capital Management LLC and an unidentified institutional investor. The Pittsburgh project is a 584-unit new development in which Jernigan Capital has a $5.3 million investment.
In all three cases, either Jernigan Capital or the joint venture holds a 49.9 percent profits interest, which is the typical structure in the lender’s transactions, according to company officials.
6/19/17 – Jernigan Capital has made a fourth co-investment with Phillips Development & Realty. The bank has committed $10.3 million toward a proposed 73,500-square-foot self-storage facility in St. Petersburg, Fla. The multi-story facility would comprise 811 climate-controlled units and be part of a mixed-use development featuring 310 apartment units and a restaurant, according to a press release.
The ground-up project is slated for 30th Avenue S., between 34th Street S. and Interstate 275. Construction is expected to begin during the third quarter and be complete by the end of September 2018. Phillips Development will serve as developer.
The 9-acre property is at the north entrance to the growing Skyway Marina District. It’ll also serve the Tierra Verde and St. Petersburg Beach markets due to its proximity to the freeway, the release stated.
“This closing sets us in a forward direction,” Donald Phillips, managing director of Phillips Development, told the source. “The facility we have planned is just the start of something much larger, something we hope will add even greater character to the already influential neighborhood.”
The storage building will include an art mural across the entire length of the structure facing I-275. “This addition to the St. Petersburg art scene will be one of the largest in history and will set the tone for the district’s long-term plan,” Phillips Development officials said in a statement. The mural’s design will be unveiled this summer.
The building site was originally home to the Suncoast Resort Hotel and was earmarked for a Home Depot development before the home-improvement retail chain cancelled its plans in 2008. Phillips Development acquired the property in February for $4.2 million, according to the source.
Jernigan Capital has closed 15 self-storage investments since Jan. 1 with a total commitment of $175.1 million. The St. Petersburg facility will also be managed by CubeSmart.

Both are expected to break ground in July, with completion anticipated before the end of the third quarter of 2018.

It’s expected to be complete during the second quarter of 2018. The project is a co-investment with Tampa, Fla.-based developer Phillips Development & Realty.
