DALLAS, April 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Recreational Realty LLC (the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and developer of specialized recreational vehicle and marine storage facilities, today announced its expansion into Florida with the acquisition of 11 premier recreational storage facilities. These transactions are expected to close within several weeks, subject to customary closing considerations.
With the most coastline in the continental U.S., the largest number of registered boats in the country, and a fast-growing population, Florida is the number one vacation destination in the country and one of the most attractive regions for outdoor and recreational enthusiasts. Florida has one of the highest populations of recreational vehicle owners in the U.S., as ‘snowbirds’ from all across the country head to Florida each winter from colder northern climates.
Each of the properties is situated near major waterways, beaches, and attractions, including Walt Disney World, Cape Canaveral, Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, and many other top vacation destinations. The 11 facilities are strategically located throughout key markets in Northeastern Florida, including seven properties in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra, two properties in Melbourne, and others in Deland and Edgewater.
The expansion builds on the Company’s entrance into the Houston market earlier this year through the acquisition of eight new, premium-grade storage facilities. Following the completion of these acquisitions, Recreational Realty will own and operate 25 institutional-grade storage facilities comprising 2.8 million square feet of leasable space across Texas and Florida.
“When it comes to the best recreational activities – whether it’s a beach day, family vacation, golfing, fishing or just exploring – Florida has it all, and it’s a natural fit for our growing business. We are thrilled to bring a new level of high-quality service and professional operation that will allow individuals and families to enjoy their hard-earned recreational time by offering facilities that allow them to store and protect their passions,” said Gary Wojtaszek, Founder, and CEO of Recreational Realty.
“From day one, we knew that we wanted to be in Florida and that the state would be an important region for our business. Florida is emblematic of the broader lifestyle shift we’re seeing with the rise of the ‘work from anywhere’ culture and the increasing desire for flexibility to get out and go. Whether it’s working from the road or the beach, our goal is to make that easier for everyone and help facilitate that lifestyle choice, and with one of the highest concentrations of RVs and registered boaters in the country, we see real demand for professionalized management and significant growth opportunities.”Gary Wojtaszek, Founder, and CEO of Recreational Realty
In December 2021, Recreational Realty partnered with Centerbridge Partners, L.P., a private investment management firm, and WOJO Capital Partners to accelerate its expansion into a national platform dedicated to serving recreational and marine vehicle owners across the nation.
