Sleiman Enterprises, a Jacksonville, Fla.-based real estate firm that specializes in the development and management of shopping centers in Florida and Southeast Georgia, has submitted a proposal to rezone 2.34 acres in Jacksonville with the intent of building a self-storage facility. The Kernan Self Storage planned-unit development (PUD) would be constructed at 11900 Atlantic Blvd. It would include a multi-story climate-controlled building and four additional storage structures comprising up to 6,000 square feet each, according to the source.
Sleiman owns the property southwest of Atlantic and Kernan Boulevards through its affiliate Property Management Support Inc., the source reported. The interchange area could be built with up to 2 million square feet of retail uses, according to the PUD notes. The site is just west of a Walmart Supercenter and shares the intersection with a BJ’s Wholesale Club, an LA fitness gym, a hotel, and other restaurant and retail uses.
The rezoning ordinance would amend the city’s 2030 comprehensive plan and change the land-use designation to a business park from a combination of institutional, professional and residential uses. The property was intended to serve as a transition between commercial services and residential development, according to the source.
The Jacksonville Planning Commission is scheduled to discuss the rezoning proposal on Thursday.
Founded in 1955, Sleiman is a private real estate services firm that offers construction, design, development, leasing and property management, with an emphasis in retail centers. It operates a portfolio of 5 million square feet of retail space, according to the company website.
