LifeStorage acquires largest self storage portfolio in the City of Boulder

HOUSTON, March 16, 2016 – JLL Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has completed the sale of a self storage portfolio located in Boulder, Colorado. Roseville, California-based LifeStorage purchased the four-property portfolio.

Managing Directors Steve Mellon and Brian Somoza, who lead JLL's National Self Storage Team, represented the seller, Heitman, in the transaction.

"This four-property offering provided investors with a highly compelling, turnkey opportunity to acquire a stabilized self storage portfolio," said Mellon. "The proximal locations, strong surrounding demographics and quality of construction should result in a solid investment for LifeStorage."

Combined, the properties total approximately 324,000 rentable square feet with more than 3,000 units, comprising about 45 percent of the total self storage space within the city.
