April 24, 2017
West Palm Beach, Fla. (April 25, 2017) – West Palm Beach-based SROA Capital, in a joint venture with MacArthur Holdings and Live Oak Capital Partners, announce the start of construction for a 100,000 square-foot climate controlled self-storage facility located at 1620 North Congress Ave., West Palm Beach, near the intersection of Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. and I-95, and at the entrance of the Land of Presidents and the Palm Beach Outlet Mall. This three-story, mixed-use building will include 830 climate-controlled units and 1,200 rentable square feet of ground floor retail space.
With construction underway, the property will be open to the public during the first quarter of 2018. The facility is designed to increase energy efficiency through the use of LED lights and motion sensors, and will feature 24-hour camera surveillance for increased security.
"We are excited to be investing locally and working with our city and county officials and surrounding neighborhoods to build a beautifully designed property that fits the storage needs of local residents and businesses," said Benjamin S. Macfarland III, CEO of SROA Capital.
In addition to the new West Palm Beach location, SROA recently purchased three existing properties in the rapidly-growing South Carolina market that are being converted into self-storage facilities. The cities include Myrtle Beach, Simpsonville and Columbia. SROA now manages 59 properties in five states, with acquisitions and expansion into additional states expected this year.
