Joint venture partners Federal Capital Partners® (FCP) and Self Storage Zone have announced the groundbreaking for the redevelopment of 645 Taylor Street, NE (formerly the Capital Area Food Bank) into a three story, 78,600 square foot, fully climate-controlled, self-storage facility. The redeveloped property will include 1,034 units ranging in size from 5’ x 5’ lockers to 10’ x 30’ units and is well-located in the Brookland submarket of Washington, DC, one block from Catholic University and six blocks from the Brookland/CUA Metro station. The facility is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2014.

”FCP is pleased to be underway in partnership with a top self-storage operator in an excellent location,” said FCP Vice President for Commercial Acquisitions, Drew Odabashian. Mr. Odabashian continued, “We believe there are continued opportunities in this region and throughout the Mid-Atlantic.”

Self Storage Zone Principal, Diane Tipton, said, “This state-of-the-art storage facility will provide safe, well-managed facilities to communities who have previously needed to travel outside the District. We look forward to completing the project and introducing our wide range of services to the residents of Northeast DC.” Self Storage Zone provides online planning and reservation services as well as free moving trucks to rental customers.
