DENVERMay 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Denver-based commercial real estate investment firm VanWest Partners (VanWest) announces the acquisition of a value-add self storage facility at 6664 Firestone Road, Jacksonville, Florida. The acquisition marks VanWest’s ninth storage facility in Florida and expands its nationwide portfolio to nearly 40 properties.

Built in 2021, the Class A, multi-level facility spans 39,570 existing net rentable square feet and offers a mix of climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units. VanWest intends to expand the property by adding 28,800 net rentable square feet comprising 176 additional units. Situated just nine miles from downtown Jacksonville, the facility serves a densely populated area of approximately 190,000 residents within a five-mile radius.

Jacob Vanderslice, VanWest’s co-founder and Principal, shares his insight on the Jacksonville market: “Jacksonville’s robust demographic trends and strong economic fundamentals make it an excellent location for self storage investment. The sustained influx of new residents, driven by the region’s economic growth, tells a great story for increasing consumer demand. The facility’s strategic location, coupled with high residential density and steady economic growth, positions the project well to deliver long-term value to our investors.”
