LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Square Storage, LLC – a developer of mixed use commercial space combining self-storage with retail, flex industrial and office space – is offering accredited investors an opportunity to participate in its Square Storage Fund I, a $10 million Regulation D 506c fund taking advantage of retail’s downturn.
Through the transformation of vacant big box retail outlets to self-storage, combined with value-added retail space on site, these mixed-use centers offer qualified investors the potential for multiple income streams and above-average returns over time.
With so much vacant retail, industrial flex and office space – and dark big box locations formerly occupied by retailers such as Sears and Kmart – economic distress leading to corporate bankruptcies present an opportunistic environment for smart investors to profit.
“With the retail apocalypse in full swing we see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Scott Mednick, president of Square Storage, LLC. “The goal is to repurpose the existing space instead of building from the ground up. We’re creating multi-floored mixed-use commercial space out of spaces that traditionally were single level, blending street level retail on the lower floor with self-storage above.”
Focused on purchasing properties below replacement cost, Square Storage is targeting space that can be re-purposed and re-vitalized in locations which meet its acquisition criteria such as dense population within a three mile radius of the facility, as well as set standards for traffic count, median household income, a minimum of at least 50,000 square feet of space, a high barrier for entry into the market for new facilities, rental rates of at least $1 per square foot and additional income streams.
Seen as recession resistant, inflation proof, and low rate of foreclosure and default, self-storage continues to be an attractive investment vehicle that profits from people’s naturally occurring life transitions.
