Atlantic Self Storage is now fully operational at 2400 Palm Valley Road in Nocatee, where the company opened the location in November 2017.
According to Randall Whitfield, the vice president of property management and development for Ash Properties, Inc., Atlantic Self Storage opened in Nocatee last year because of the area’s rapid growth and influx of new residents. He also noted that the location opened to meet the demand of Ponte Vedra boat owners in need of a place to store their crafts.
"It’s a new and growing area," Whitfield said. "We try to keep up with the demands of the needs of the different communities and different areas of Jacksonville, and Nocatee needed this type of facility both for self-storage and also for the boat and RV storage."
Ash Properties, Inc., the development and property management company that operates Atlantic Self Storage, is still seeking to add a few minor details to the Nocatee location over the next few months. The property management company has filed a request with St. Johns County's Growth Management Division to add a wall sign that exceeds the minimum dimensions, requiring a non-zoning variance and architectural review approvals, according to county planning and zoning official Beverly Frazier.
"The planning staff has always been supportive and we have had good relations there and always will do things according to county wishes and desires," Whitfield said.
What makes Atlantic Self Storage unique, he added, is that it’s a locally-owned and operated business aimed at serving the community.
"We can make decisions quickly," Whitfield said. "We're not having to go out of state to have questions answered. We care about our product, we reinvest in our product and we're a part of the community."
The Ash Properties vice president noted that Atlantic Self Storage has participated in several programs that provide services to local neighborhoods, such as Toys for Tots. Additionally, Whitfield asserted that the company has become entrenched within Northeast Florida after operating for close to 40 years.
"We are part of Jacksonville," he said. "We plan to continue to be part of the Jacksonville growth, we love the community and we’re going to continue to support the community in different avenues and we hope the community in turn will support us."
