Car Concierge Storage Takes First Step Forward in Florida

Vacant South Barfield lots in consideration for Car Concierge units.

By Steve Stefanides

Since October of 2023, the city’s Growth Management Department has been working with the offices of Blair Foley, Civil Engineer/Development Consultant located at 120 Edgemere Way/South in Naples, regarding a petition for an amendment to the City’s Land Development Code.

His office is requesting an amendment to the city’s Land Development Code to allow the storage of personal vehicles within the C-3 Zoning. The Growth Management Department brought forth the request to the Planning Board at their March 1 meeting.

Car Concierge Storage Takes First Step Forward in FloridaDaniel Smith, the City’s Community Development Manager, gave the Planning Board a positive recommendation for the four parcels from 138-168 South Barfield, which would be combined into a 1.68-acre site for the purpose of building a car concierge storage facility. These individual units would be sold separately by the developer for high-valued motor vehicles. 

Although the concept is somewhat new,  there have been similar units constructed on the island as collectors seek to store vehicle collectibles. Director Smith explained the “Conditional Use” caveat would provide the Planning Board with control over the usage, landscaping buffers and other developmental aspects of the facilities. No commercial usage would be allowed as part of the facilities.

This would allow storage for local hobbyists and other residents closer to their homes. Each unit would have an overhead door as well as an entry door,  climate controlled with storage and other amenities. No sleeping facilities would be available, and no outside storage would be allowed.

An SDP (A Site Development Plan) would be required which would add another level of control.

The Planning Board went on to approve the Amendment to the City’s Land Development Plan by a vote of 7-0. It will now go to the City Council for their approval. Should council approve the amendment, the petitioner would then return to Growth Management to present a Site Development Plan (SDP) for the entire acreage. Once the petitioner finalizes the SDP with staff it will go onto the Planning Board for their approval before being sent onto City Council for a public hearing and final approval.
