investment strategy

exisiting storage facilities

existing self storage unit rows

Through our integrated platform of market research and underwriting, we qualify existing properties that exhibit high potential for growth under our direct management. Since larger, publicly traded companies own less that 25% of existing facilities, smaller, independent operators control much of the market. Many of these independent facilities operate undermanaged and, therefore, underperforming. Through the process of acquiring and self-managing these facilities, they become an asset to our self-storage investment portfolio.  

  • Integrated Tech and Automation
  • Systems and Procedures
  • Rebranding (Ex: StorCo)
  • Rent Management

Consumer trends have changed the landscape for retail spaces. Because the demand for these large buildings has decreased, it allows us to purchase these buildings, in highly trafficked, prime locations for well below replacement cost Our team excels at finding the right empty spaces, in the right locations to add value to the community and our portfolio. Also, by maintaining existing structural features of the property, many conversions require fewer city approvals, resulting in faster completion and reduced cost. 

  • Faster Build Times
  • Lower Cost Per Sq. Ft. to Construct
  • Sale/Redevelop Out-Partials
  • Reduces Risk of New Competitors
  • Reduces Risk of New Competitors with Infield Locations

Ground up development offers the ability to capitalize on High Demand Markets during the site selection. Our team also researches and capitalizes on all available incentives that lead to cost savings and faster approvals such as LEED and PACE certifications, tax credit and energy savings. Technology and automation can also be built into the facility, reducing operational costs upon completion. Furthermore, projects are tailored to provide the most in-demand unit sizes for that specific market, reducing lease-up time. 

  • Site Selection in High Storage Demand Markets
  • Integrate Tech and Automation Into the Building
  • Incentives Etc. LEED, PACE, Energy, and Warranties
  • Construct Highest-Demand Units Based on the Market
