JLL Negotiates Three Self-Storage Transactions

HOUSTON, December 10, 2015 – JLL’s National Self-Storage Team is proud to announce that the firm has negotiated three recent self-storage transactions. Houston-based Managing Director Steve Mellon and Los Angeles-based Managing Director Brian Somoza led the JLL team on the transactions.  

On behalf of the seller, JLL negotiated the sale of Killeen Self Storage, an 84,588-square-foot facility located at 5400 East Central Texas Expressway in Killeen, Texas.  A private investor acquired the property for an undisclosed amount.

“Killeen Self Storage presented a value-add opportunity for investors, with the opportunity to increase occupancy following the recently completed expansion of East Central Texas Expressway,” said Mellon.

Following the Killeen Self Storage deal, JLL negotiated, on behalf of Excel Commercial, the sale of Pearland Storage @ Southfork, a 71,715-square-foot facility located at 2930 County Road 59 in Manvel, Texas.  Public Storage acquired the property for an undisclosed amount.

“The property is new construction located in the rapidly growing Pearland submarket and is poised for rapid lease up due to the numerous new and proposed residential and commercial developments surrounding the property,” said Somoza.

Most recently, JLL’s self-storage team negotiated on behalf of the seller in the sale of Eagle Rock Self Storage, a 51,891-square-foot facility located at 465 Eagle Rock Avenue in Roseland, New Jersey.  CubeSmart acquired the property for an undisclosed amount.
“Eagle Rock Self Storage is a well occupied facility with a track record of strong performance which will be a great addition to CubeSmart’s portfolio,” said Somoza. 

Tom DiMicelli, Executive Vice President in JLL’s Melville, New York office, also helped lead the JLL team in facilitating this transaction.
