Demolishing a single-story vacant structure on Indiantown Road at Commerce Way and replacing it with a self-storage building with 700 units is up for a final vote Jan. 16 by the town council.
The Ellison Graphics 21,000 square-foot building is on the south side of Indiantown Road across from the Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Clinic.
The proposal by Hilton Head, So. Carolina-based Pinnacle Storage llc calls for replacing the structure with a three-story, climate-controlled building that would be 97,500 square feet.
Traffic will not be a problem, said Pinnacle President Christopher Perry.
The company has other locations in South Florida. The Jupiter location would be the first for the company in Palm Beach County, he said.
“Self-storage buildings are not big traffic generators,” Perry said. “People generally come when they drop off and pick up their possessions. It’s not like a restaurant.”
Construction is expected to start in the spring and take about a year. About four full- and part-time employees would be hired.
Land purchase and construction costs are expected to be about $13 million, Perry said.
