Gelt Inc. Purchases 665-Unit Self-Storage Facility in California for $16.5M
SOUTH PASADENA, CALIF. — Los Angeles-based Gelt Inc. has acquired Southmark Storage, a self-storage facility located in South Pasadena. Southmark Storage LLC, a California-based private investor, sold the property for $16.5 million.
Situated on a 1.8-acre site at 919 Mission St., the six-building property features 623 indoor storage units, 42 outdoor rental units, a site office and a two-bedroom manager’s apartment. At the close of escrow, the property, which was built in 1986, was 99 percent occupied.
Immediately upon closing, Gelt hired Extra Space Storage to streamline operations at the property. Gelt also plans to install new roofs, asphalt and paint, as well as signage, property access systems and the addition of a web payment platform.
Greg Nassir and Edward Matevosian of CBRE represented the seller, while Gelt was self-represented in the transaction.
