The Caster Group, which operates 48 A-1 Self Storage locations in California, is building a new 114,000-square-foot facility in the Pacific Beach community of San Diego. A Sonic Drive-In fast-food restaurant will also be developed on a portion of the property at 2740 Garnet Ave. Both are expected to open in November.
The storage facility will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Customers will also be able to reserve units via the company’s online platform.
"The Caster Group looks forward to opening our newest A-1 Self Storage location in Pacific Beach, making it our 18th store in the San Diego market,” said Brian Caster, CEO and president. "Given its prime location on Garnet Avenue and Mission Bay Drive, plus easy accessibility to [Interstate-5], this property possesses great potential.”
The Caster Group is seeking to purchase raw land, existing facilities, in-fill projects and those that are entitled but not built in California and Texas, according to a company press release. The third-generation, family-owned company has been headquartered in Southern California since 1959. It develops and manages A-1 Self Storage, A-1 Car Storage and other commercial properties in California. Its portfolio includes more than 5 million square feet of real estate.
