THE WILLIAM WARREN GROUP ACQUIRES FOUR
TEXAS SELF STORAGE PROPERTIES FOR $27.9M
WWG targets areas experiencing an economic boom to expand the StorQuest brand
Santa Monica, Calif. – December 17, 2014 - The William Warren Group (WWG), a privately held, Santa Monica, Calif.-based self storage development and operating company, is announcing the addition of four key properties in Texas for approximately $27.9 million as part of its value-added growth strategy. The facilities consist of a total of 2,257 units with 349,169 RSF.
“Adding these assets to our existing portfolio in Texas positions the company to achieve greater operating economies of scale and capitalize on the economic boom created by robust job and population growth in the state,” said Bill Hobin, president & CEO of WWG. “The value of self storage is particularly high in areas that are going through, or are expecting, a sharp increase in population growth. We believe that the success of the local Texas economy combined with the value-added nature of these assets will allow WWG to unlock currently unrealized value in the properties.”
Now, with the additional facilities added to the platform, WWG, which owns and operates the StorQuest Self Storage brand, has 112 locations in the company’s operating portfolio, 75 of which are branded as StorQuest.
“These new locations are an ideal fit for our growing portfolio. Implementing WWG’s professionally managed digital marketing and revenue management programs will systematically improve net operating income levels, achieve greater occupancy levels and create increased value for our investors,” said Hobin.
