It will include a 3-story building with 594 climate-controlled units and three non-climate-controlled single-storage buildings with 44 drive-up units ideal for boat and RV storage. The facility will also feature 24-hour security and state-of-the-art amenities. 

Construction has commenced on the project, with site work and foundation work already underway. The property is slated to be completed before the end of the year. 

Stirling Properties is developing the facility and will handle Asset Management of it upon completion. The architect is locally owned Greenleaf Lawson and Kent Design Build is serving as the building general contractor for the project. The Civil Engineer is Duplantis Design Group and Richard Price Construction is handling the site work.

“We are excited to begin the development of River Chase Self Storage. This project marks Stirling Properties’ newest ground-up, climate-controlled storage facility development,” said Townsend Underhill, President of Development for Stirling Properties. “St. Tammany Parish is experiencing fantastic population growth, creating a high demand for this type of product and its strategic location along the I-12 corridor provides high visibility, easy access in a secure environment and convenience for customers.”
