The seller was represented in the transaction by Brian Somoza and Steve Mellon, managing directors of JLL Capital Markets, a commercial finance and real estate firm. JLL also secured the acquisition financing, according to a press release. Vice president Griffin Guthneck led the financing efforts.
“With best-in-class design and state-of-the-art construction, this facility leads the market in overall quality, providing investors with the highest-quality self-storage space available in its market,” Somoza said. “Additionally, the property is positioned in a populous area with above-average household incomes and benefits from excellent visibility along the retail-oriented Bay Area Boulevard.”
