U-Haul’s plans to build its first ever “Smart Mobility Center” by converting vacant buildings on Tallahassee’s west side cleared a major rezoning hurdle.
Last week, city commissioners approved a request to create a Planned Unit Development for roughly 24 acres near Capital Circle Northwest and Tennessee Street. The PUD allows the land and buildings to be used for warehouses, mini-warehouses or self-storage facilities. Its previous zoning allowed a high-intensity urban activity center.
The mobility center would include up to 85,000 square feet of research and incubator space, up to 150,000 square feet for a smart mobility showroom and self-storage area and up to 23,000 square feet each for bike sales and service and a Ford Chariot rideshare facility for commuter shuttles.
