WASHINGTON, D.C., August 18, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of a 1,752-unit self-storage facility at 72 Florida Ave. NE in Washington, D.C.

JLL represented the seller, Foulger-Pratt and procured the buyer, Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, in partnership with Baranof Holdings.

Completed in March 2020, the property operates as an Extra Space Self Storage and consists of a seven-level, climate-controlled building housing the storage units, a 1,000-square-foot office and 400 square feet of restrooms and bike storage. The facility offers modern amenities, including electronic access control, 24-hour video surveillance, covered loading areas and two elevators to access the upper floors.

Located just under two miles from downtown Washington, D.C., the self-storage facility benefits from a prime location with exposure to more than 124,000 vehicles daily. The immediate area, which is currently underserved for storage needs, is home to more than 405,000 residents and is projected to grow based on the significant number of residential developments proposed or under construction.

The JLL Capital Markets self-storage team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Steve Mellon and Brian Somoza and Directors Craig Childs, Bill Prutting and Jay Wellschlager.

“The 72 Florida facility was well-received by the investment community given the limited competition of self-storage facilities and supply constraints in the current D.C. market,” Mellon said.
