ATLANTA, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Storage Post Self Storage today announced the purchase of two self storage properties on Long Island, New York from a privately-owned self storage operator. The assets are located within densely-populated areas at 380 Oakwood Road in Huntington Station and 1960 Veterans Memorial Highway in Islandia.
The Huntington Station location consists of 43,841 square feet with 585 rentable storage units, including car rental parking. Features include climate controlled storage units, accessible loading areas, moving supplies and two points of vehicle entry. Located on a high-visibility, north-south road, the Huntington location has large retail frontage and Storage Post anticipates steady demand.
The Islandia location consists of 902 storage units within 85,350 rentable square feet, including rental parking spaces. The entire facility is ground level and situated on nearly 6 acres off of a 4-lane divided highway, providing substantial visibility from daily traffic. Its features include convenient drive-up units, daily access, moving supplies and a detached rental office with potential for increased retail prominence on the busy roadway.
Dylan Delaune, Storage Post chief investments officer, adds, "Jack Giannola, our director of acquisitions, worked closely with the seller to engineer a competitive offer tailored to the unique qualities of the purchased assets. We look forward to folding these two facilities into the Storage Post brand and continuing to provide excellent service and valuable returns."
Storage Post CEO Bruce Roch, Jr. is an industry veteran and leader in self storage innovation. Within the last two years, Roch and his team have purchased 16 self storage facilities, including the company's newly-renovated buildings in Long Island City, Yonkers and New Rochelle.
