Self-Storage Facility Located Minutes from the Santa Monica Pier

Santa Monica, CAMatthews Real Estate Investment Services, a commercial real estate investment services and technology firm, completed the historical sale of a 1,070-unit self-storage facility located at 1620 14th Street and 1621 Euclid Street, Santa Monica, CA. The investment’s two parcels sit on 1.39 acres at the intersection of Colorado Avenue and 14th Street. Market Leader Bill Pedersen, Associate Shane Avera, and Market Leader Maxx Bauman represented the seller in the transaction.


The 56,490 square-foot self-storage facility is in a prime location off the Santa Monica Freeway blocks away from Downtown and the Santa Monica Pier. The property is located in a corridor undergoing substantial redevelopment – including several multifamily, office, and mixed-use projects, as well as the recently completed Metro E Line.


The property was purchased by Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, in partnership with Baranof Holdings. The investors were interested in adding to their California portfolio and acquiring an immensely rare and profitable self-storage facility. The self-storage buyers plan to invest in and enhance the property and its services.


“This self-storage asset is a unique long-term investment with tremendous room for professional management and operational efficiencies to add value,” Avera said.


Prior to the acquisition, Santa Monica Self-Storage had been held by the same owner since 1970.


“The Matthews’ marketing process allowed us to bring the most qualified and probable buyers to the table, creating a competitive bidding environment,” Bauman said. “We also created favorable terms for our client, allowing them to exit this long-term asset and find their up-leg properties.”
