Simply Self Storage (SSS), which owns or manages 210 self-storage facilities in the United States and Puerto Rico, has acquired a facility in Seattle, its first in Washington. The property at 2811 N.W. Market St. is north of Salmon Bay in the Ballard neighborhood, which includes the city’s Scandinavian seafaring community. It’s next to the Portage Bay Cafe, and across from Marine Lenders Services LLC and the Republic Parking 30-241 Jacobson Terminals Lot.
The facility comprises more than 85,000 total rentable square feet of storage space in 577 climate-controlled and drive-up units. Property features include security cameras, keypad entry, and a retail store that sells moving and packing supplies.
“Our Market Street Seattle location marks the first footprint in the beginning of our expansion to the West Coast,” said CEO Kurt O’Brien. “We are excited about offering world-class service to the residents and businesses of Seattle, and we look forward to other openings in Washington and other locations along the Pacific.”
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Orlando, Fla., SSS properties comprise more than 16 million square feet of storage space. The company is looking to aggressively grow its development pipeline, with projects underway in California, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.
