MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jernigan Capital, Inc. (NYSE:JCAP) (the “Company”) announced today that it has closed a $8.7 million investment in a proposed multi-story, climate-controlled 719 unit facility in Salem, NH, a growing suburb of Boston, MA.
The proposed 74,625 net rentable square foot facility will be a ground-up, three-story project located at 10 Hampshire Road situated off of Broadway (Route 28) providing visibility to over 20,000 cars per day and easy access to Interstate 93, the primary commuter artery into Boston.
The City of Salem, located roughly 25 miles from Downtown Boston, sits on the border of New Hampshire and Massachusetts. In addition to Salem, the proposed facility will also serve the towns of Methuen, MA and Lawrence, MA. The submarket has a population of over 100,000, of which over 50% live in multi-family housing, and has a self-storage square footage per capita below the national average. Currently the market is served by big box retailers such as Target, Home Depot, and Apple. The proposed project will sit directly across Broadway from a Lowe’s-anchored shopping center.
Construction is expected to begin in Q1 2018 to and be completed in Q4 2018. 603 Storage -headquartered in Northwood, NH- is the developer of the proposed project. This is the first project on which 603 Storage and the Company have co-invested.
