StorageMart, which operates 200 self-storage properties across Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, has acquired Twin Cities Self Storage in the Minneapolis suburb of Chaska, Minn. The property at 2218, 1900 Stoughton Ave. comprises more than 89,000 square feet of rentable space in 544 units. It also contains parking spaces for vehicle storage. Features include climate control, drive-through loading bays, PIN-controlled access and video cameras.
“Bringing easy, clean storage service to Chaska is a great move, and we're thrilled to offer new self-storage service to the community,” said Cris Burnam, president.
The buyer and the seller were represented in the transaction by Tom Flannigan, a broker with KW Commercial and an affiliate of the Argus Self Storage Sales Network.
StorageMart reached the 200-property milestone last month with the purchase of Air Station Storage in Virginia Beach, Va. In February, it acquired two properties in the Des Moines, Iowa, metropolitan market.

Its portfolio consists of more than 12 million square feet of storage. It serves more than 75,000 self-storage customers, and operates in Chinese, English, Punjabi, Quebecois French and Spanish.
