HOUSTON, June 17, 2021JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Springwood Self Storage, a 426-unit, Class A self-storage facility in the northern part of Austin, Texas.

JLL worked on behalf of the seller, Springwood Self Storage LLC. Wasatch Storage Partners purchased the asset.

Springwood Self Storage comprises one three-story building that opened in 2017. Constructed to Class A standards, the facility contains modern amenities in its three stories, including all climate-controlled units, elevator access, retail-oriented customer service office and security features.

Situated on .89 acres at 9206 Anderson Mill Rd., Springwood Self Storage has more than 150 feet along Anderson Mill Road, a high-traffic Austin arterial. The location is proximate to multiple critical area thoroughfares, including Highway 183, FM 620 and Parmer Lane. The area within a three-mile radius of the property is home to more than 98,000 residents, which is projected to grow at an annual rate of 1.92% over the next five years. Additionally, Robinson Ranch is two miles east of the facility, which houses more than 6,700 acres of land zoned for development.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales Advisory team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Brian Somoza and Steve Mellon.

“The area surrounding Springwood Self Storage is already experiencing rapid population growth along with the city of Austin, which already welcomes 169 new residents moving to the city each day,” Mellon said. “Currently, more than 60% of the residents within a one-mile radius are renting, and, with Robinson Ranch and other developments near the property, the surrounding area is shaping up to be one of the hottest real estate markets in Austin.”

This transaction comes on the heels of the JLL Capital Markets-facilitated trade of CubeSmart – Bee Cave and All Stor South Congress in Austin announced in May, demonstrating the demand for these types of assets in the region.
