The 11-acre site offers 577 spaces of covered and uncovered parking. The company invested substantial capital in developing the site, which features a new welcome center and complimentary amenities like wash bays, dump stations, ice machines, wireless internet, charging outlets, and a dog park. Like all of the properties in the Carefree portfolio, security is the top priority and the site offers high-definition cameras and gated entry.
“We are thrilled to offer high quality RV parking to the city of Wylie,” said Barry Raber, BPT’s president and CEO. “We’re looking forward to serving the growing population in the area.”
Carefree Covered operates another property two miles away, its St. Paul location, which opened last August and recently reached 80% occupancy. The company is hopeful for the same leasing success at its second location. With the planned widening of Parker Road, the site is positioned to receive high traffic and visibility, especially given its proximity to Lake Lavon and the number of boats and recreational vehicles in the area.
Chad Snyder and Tyler Trahant of Dominus Commercial represented Carefree Covered RV Storage in the acquisition of the land. Development partners on the Wylie project include EAPC Architects Engineers and Done Deal Iron Works. General contractor A.T. Meridian Construction completed the project six weeks ahead of schedule, allowing for an earlier opening than anticipated.
