Vinings, Ga.— Jernigan Capital Inc. has closed a $13.6 million investment for a proposed self-storage project in Vinings, the company announced recently. The developer of the project is Mequity LLC, an Atlanta-based real estate development company specializing in self-storage facilities.

The project is expected to break ground in the second quarter of 2017 and to be completed in the second quarter of 2018. Development involves the conversion of an existing building as well as the construction of an additional multi-story climate-controlled facility. The proposed 103,561-square-foot asset will include 1,118 units and the buildings will be interconnected.

The facility is conveniently situated just off an exit to Interstate 285 and will serve the Vinings/Smyrna area, a rapidly growing suburb northwest of Atlanta.
