About Nuvo Development

Nuvo provides an exciting new vision of development in the self-storage industry. Imagining new designs and finding creative and successful locations are the mantra for Nuvo.

All of which ties in with a strong focus on Nuvo’s investors. Nuvo works to ensure that its projects yield the highest returns for investors. It is one thing to build basic old-style self-storage facilities, quite another to create inviting and highly functional buildings that will bring in business and keep occupancy rates high. The firm is highly committed to developing best-in-class self-storage facilities by locating superior sites, teaming with strong investors, and thinking outside the box.

The Nuvo Story

Gary Cardamone is a divergent and creative entrepreneur, having a knack for relationship building, project management and feasibility analysis. After having worked in the Medical Device Industry in the late 1990’s, he took an avid interest in self-storage. In 1999, along with his brother Rich as a partner, he developed, owned, and operated over 1.0 million square feet of storage and retail property within the USA Stor-A-Way brand.

During that time, Cardamone learned every aspect of the self storage business, including acquisition of land, managing the entitlement process, securing debt, equity financing, partnership management, project budgeting, operating proforma, coordination of 3rd party development, property management, and lease up to stabilization and divestiture.

Working from behind the desk provided Gary keen insight into the needs of the customer. Managing the growth of a brand, storage platform and eventual divestiture provided Gary experience and knowledge. Gary eventually sold USA Stor-A-Way in early 2007. Due to the volatile economy in 2008, Gary thought creatively. He bootstrapped an electronic payments platform that today processes more than 1.0 billion dollars for more than 3,500 clients totaling more than 1.0 million transactions.

The firm’s direction stems from Mr. Cardamone having developed, owned and operated self-storage facilities. His experience gives him a solid understanding of what works in the industry and how to exercise a new and improved, modern approach into current self-storage development.
