Simply Self Storage acquired 2811 NW Market Street in Seattle. The store has 577 units and just over 85,000 total rentable square feet. The facility hosts several businesses that serve the Old Ballard area near the waterfront. This is the company’s first acquisition in the market, but Simply Self Storage’s intends to expand its West Coast portfolio.
The facility is located north of Salmon Bay, on the northwest side of Seattle. The property is beside the Portage Bay Cafe, just across from Marine Lenders Service and the Republic Parking 30-241 Jacobson Terminals Lot. Amenities include security cameras, keypad entry, indoor and outdoor lighting, drive-up unit access, climate controlled units, carts, dollies and packing supplies. With both short and long-term leases available, the Seattle storage units also feature mini-storage space.
“Our Market Street Seattle location marks the first footprint in the beginning of our expansion to the West Coast. 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,” said Simply Self Storage CEO Kurt O’Brien, in a prepared statement. The company is looking to aggressively grow its development pipeline and currently has sites under development in Washington, California, Minnesota, Texas, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, New York and Tennessee.
