Strategic Storage Growth Trust Acquires Ground-Up Self-Storage Development in Pembroke Pines, FL


Update 2/5/18 – SSGT has formally acquired the newly constructed self-storage facility in Pembroke Pines. The SmartStop location is slightly smaller than originally announced, comprising 84,000 square feet in 870 units. The building configuration didn’t change, according to a press release. The project was completed last month.

“[We] expect the property to add significant value to our portfolio as it's leased up in an attractive self-storage market," said Wayne Johnson, chief investment officer.

4/28/16 – Strategic Storage Growth Trust Inc. (SSGT), a public, non-traded real estate investment trust focused on self-storage acquisition and development, has entered into a contract to acquire a ground-up self-storage development in Pembroke Pines, Fla., upon issuance of a certificate of occupancy. The 3-acre tract of land is being constructed by a regional developer, according to a company press release.

The site plan for the property at Pines Boulevard and Southwest 186th Avenue includes a two- and a three-story building totaling 85,000 net rentable square feet in 880 climate-controlled units. Construction begins next month and is expected to be completed in the first or second quarter of 2017, the release said.

"Our firm has a mandate to acquire $300-plus million in certificate-of-occupancy deals throughout the United States and Toronto," said H. Michael Schwartz, CEO and chairman. "Once completed, this new Florida facility will become an excellent addition to our expanding self-storage portfolio."

SSGT focuses on the acquisition, development, redevelopment and lease-up of self-storage properties. Its portfolio currently consists of 13 storage facilities in six states comprising approximately 979,900 net rentable square feet in 8,460 storage units.
