“We are excited to add six additional properties into our high-quality portfolio of recently delivered self-storage facilities in top MSAs,” said John Good, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “Our 14 properties in the Miami MSA, six wholly owned and another eight in our development investment program, give us a strong footprint in one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing gateway markets. These acquisitions continue the execution of our strategy to create value for our shareholders through long-term ownership of exceptionally located, high quality, current generation self-storage assets at attractive investment yields.”
