JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the sale of a six-property self storage portfolio located in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Glendale, California-based Public Storage purchased the portfolio from Walnut Creek, California-based Pegasus Group, which operates as Central Self Storage.

Brian Somoza and Steve Mellon led the JLL team on the sale.

“This portfolio was an attractive, turnkey investment opportunity that allowed the buyer to increase their presence in Minnesota by 12 percent,” said Somoza. “Stabilized occupancy combined with upward trending rents and minimal capital expenditures should result in healthy cash-on-cash returns for the new ownership.”

In total, the portfolio encompasses more than 360,000 square feet and 3,243 units. Features of the properties include: climate controlled units, drive-up units, interior drive-thru loading, electronic access control, 24-hour video surveillance and retail-oriented customer service offices.

With an average occupancy of approximately 90 percent, the properties are located across downtown Minneapolis and nearby popular cities. The average three-mile population ring across the portfolio is more than 91,000 and is projected to grow more than 5.3 percent by 2022.

The portfolio is composed of the following assets.

  • 425 Washington Ave. N, Minneapolis
  • 150 81st St. W, Bloomington
  • 21002 Heron Way, Lakeview
  • 5040 Winnetka Ave., New Hope
  • 7225 Bush Lake Road, Edina
  • 407 School Road NW / 1015 Highway 7, Hutchinson
