A joint venture has broken ground on a new 595-unit self-storage facility in Winslow Township, under a partnership with the industry’s second-largest operator.
The firms, Homestake Capital and Harvestate Group, announced that construction is underway at 310 Sicklerville Road, the site of what will become Extra Space Storage at Winslow. The 66,300-square-foot facility is slated to open in January.
“We were able to put a team together and get all the necessary entitlements and approvals in place to break ground on this property in less than a year,” said Stephen Patron of Harvestate Group. “This is a true testament to the relationship we have with Winslow Township.”
Patron joined Michael J. Kokes and Clark McIntyre of Homestake Capital, Winslow Mayor Barry Wright and Chris Patron of Harvestate last week to mark the start of construction. John Kirkenir, also a partner on the project, was not present for the groundbreaking.
“Steve Patron has brought so many good projects to Winslow Township,” Wright said. “We have some homeowners back here in The Woodlands that were very concerned about what was going to go on this particular piece of property. So, when Steve and his partners came up with the idea of building a climate-controlled self-storage facility, a true top-class operation like everything else Steve does, we knew it would be a great ratable for Winslow.
“Extra Space Storage is going to serve our people, give them storage space, and, even more important than that, it makes the neighbors happy,” Wright added. “I thank you for coming here to Winslow. You’re a great partner.”
Patron also praised the development team and local officials in the Camden County municipality. ARCO Design/Build Industrial is the general contractor overseeing the build-out of the project.
Extra Space Storage is the country’s second-largest operator of self-storage facilities.
