State-Of-The-Art Storage Facility Opening In Delray


Staff report

If you need a place to store your stuff, a new, state-of-the-art storage facility will soon be opening in Delray Beach.

Located on nearly 2.5 acres at 1125 Wallace Drive, the project was developed by long-time Delray commercial development firm Southern Development Services.

It will be managed by CubeSmart, a self-administered and self-managed real estate company.

“With the continuing growth of Delray Beach, there is an increasing need for these types of facilities,” president of Southern Development Services Jim Zengage said. “This is a booming sector of the real estate industry for good reason – people need a place to put their belongings.”

He said the facility will serve people moving, folks downsizing as well as the business sector.

“People might be moving to smaller homes and don’t want to part with valuables,” he said. “Apartments are generally smaller today, so this poses another reason for this type of development. Businesses also need space for records and inventory.”

The facility will feature approximately 500 units from 25 to 300 square feet with most being climate-controlled. Other bays will offer drive-up access without air-conditioning.

The facility will be accessible through gates requiring entry and exit codes. In addition, the facility will be well-lit inside and outside. There will be approximately 42 cameras and after-hours motion detectors.

Another project enhancement is a generator back-up that will keep security systems, lights and cameras operational in the event of a power outage.

“Our location will be a huge benefit to our customers,”Zengage said. “Our security-enhancing technology will be an added feature. Another key advantage is its close proximity to homes in Delray.”
