PHILADELPHIA, July 8, 2021JLL Capital Markets announced today that it arranged financing for the acquisition of Cornerstone Self Storage, a 359-unit, 48,025-square-foot self-storage facility in the coastal community of Westerly, Rhode Island.  

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, The Storage Investment Group, to place the five-year, fixed-rate acquisition loan with The Washington Trust Company, headquartered in Westerly. Storage Asset Management will manage the facility.

Cornerstone Self Storage comprises five buildings that house a combination of climate-controlled and drive-up units ranging from 25 to 450 square feet. Completed between 1982 and 2015, the facility also has 28 RV parking spaces along with a 1000 kw solar system, 24/7 video surveillance, an on-site manager, perimeter-wide fencing and electronic gate access.

Situated on 1.79 acres at 234-236 Post Rd., the facility is in Westerly, a town on the southwestern shoreline of Washington County and a popular tourist destination during the summer months when the population nearly doubles. Cornerstone Self Storage is along the heavily travelled Post Road (U.S. Route 1) and has visibility from Dunns Corner Road.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing The Storage Investment Group was led by Directors Michael Pagniucci and Henry Schaffer.

The Storage Investment Group, led by Chris Corr, is a fast-growing self-storage owner/operator with $125 million in assets under management.

“We are excited to partner with the JLL Capital Markets team on another successful transaction,” Corr said. “The continued execution of our business plan has proven out tremendous results for our current partners, and we look forward to furthering our success with the Westerly asset. As we are now underway raising our third round of equity, we intend to further expand our portfolio which will continue to provide strong cash flow and capital appreciation for our investors.”
