Compass Self Storage LLC, a member of the Amsdell family of companies, recently acquired a self-storage facility in Jacksonville, Fla., and another in Acworth, Ga. The properties will be rebranded as Compass Self Storage. The acquisitions were made by separate affiliates of Amsdell Group LLC and Compass Self Storage LLC.
The facility at 2825 St. Johns Bluff Road in Jacksonville encompasses nearly 60,000 net rentable square feet of storage space. It’s the company’s 12th location in the Florida market. Amenities include drive-up units, video cameras, online-payment options, and moving and packing supplies.
The acquisition at 5488 Wade Green Road in Acworth includes more than 42,000 net rentable square feet of storage space. It’s the company’s fifth location in the Georgia market. Amenities match those of the Acworth property but also include outdoor parking.
Company growth is projected to continue in 2014 with the acquisition and development of self-storage properties in select markets, company representatives said in a press release.
