CHARLOTTE, Sept. 7, 2023 - Charlotte-based developer Proffitt Dixon Partners today announces the completion and opening of Carraway Self Storage, the first climate-controlled self storage facility in Chapel Hill, N.C. JLL managed the design and construction of the 93,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art development. Public Storage, the world’s largest owner, operator and developer of self-storage facilities, will act as a third-party manager for the asset on behalf of the owner.

“We are thrilled to bring the first climate-controlled self storage facility to Chapel Hill,” said William Andrews, Partner at Proffitt Dixon Partners. “Our partnership with both JLL and Public Storage has allowed us to deliver a top-of-the-line storage option with a wide array of amenities, flexible locker plans and fair rates. We know this facility will continue to provide convenience, quality and accessibility to the Chapel Hill community.”

Rising four stories and spanning 93,000 square feet of rentable storage space, Carraway Self Storage features best-in-class amenities such as contactless rentals, LED sensor lighting, an advanced security system, and boat and RV storage options. All rental units are climate-controlled – a first-of-its-kind storage offering in the area. Adjacent to the development is a complimentary park-and-ride lot, further increasing the facility’s accessibility and parking options. Users can choose from small, medium and large unit offerings as well as indoor and outdoor lockers. Notably, all indoor units benefit from elevator accessibility.

Conveniently situated within minutes from the Carraway Village mixed-use district, Carraway Self Storage is quickly accessible to a variety of dining and retail options. With easy access to I-40 and just minutes away from both UNC Chapel Hill and Duke University, the area has also seen a recent uptick in multifamily growth, with at least 400 units recently completed in 2020 and Northwood Ravin’s newest development, featuring retail, apartments and hotel planned for Eubanks Road.

“When planning this space, our team was focused on designing for functionality, convenience and quality,” said Martha Fakadej, Vice President at JLL. “With a wide array of users in mind, our goal was to create a space that was capable of withstanding the test of time, ultimately filling a need within the submarket. We know that Carraway Storage will be a valuable resource for Chapel Hill and are pleased to have partnered with Proffitt Dixon Partners on the project.”
