BCDC, ADEVCO Break Ground on Extra Space Storage

Project is First in New Joint-Venture Program Between Atlanta Developers

Batson-Cook Development Company, BCDC, and ADEVCO (ADEVCO Corporation) have entered into a joint venture partnership that will deliver a three-story climate-controlled Extra Space Storage with 804 secure storage units in Dunwoody, Ga. 

“BCDC is committed to partnering with the best-in-class developers throughout the Southeastern United States, and we have done that once again with ADEVCO,” said Litt Glover, CEO. “This is a new programmatic opportunity for us. ADEVCO has the experience and expertise to ensure a successful partnership.” 

The JV has closed on the land and recently broke ground on the 112,000 square-foot, three-story climate-controlled building located at 4444 N. Shallowford Road in Dunwoody, Ga. The new Extra Space Storage will be delivered to meet the growing demand for self-storage in the Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Sandy Springs and Perimeter Center submarkets.

The submarket has experienced explosive population growth as a result of commercial relocations. There are ongoing and planned multifamily developments nearby, which projects an ongoing demand for professionally managed institutional quality self-storage. 

Georgia’s Own Credit Union is providing construction financing, and BCDC and ADEVCO are providing equity. Extra Space Storage, the second largest operator of self storage facilities in the US, will be providing leasing and property management.  

Delivery is expected in the first quarter 2020.
