JLL negotiates sale of Montreal self-storage portfolio

MONTREAL, Nov. 20, 2017 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm completed the sale of a self-storage portfolio located in Montreal, Quebec. Montreal Mini-Storage Group purchased the two-property portfolio from Dalfen American Corp.

Managing Directors Steve Mellon, Brian Somoza and Robert MacDougall led the JLL team on the transaction.

"Strong surrounding demographics, quality construction and busy retail locations made this an attractive offering and should result in a solid investment for Montreal Mini-Storage Group," said Mellon.

The Class A properties total approximately 169,000 rentable square feet and more than 1,300 units. Both facilities include climate controlled units, move-in ready office suites, warehouse spaces, electronic access control, 24-hour video surveillance, retail-oriented customer service offices and temperature controlled loading docks.

Converted to a self-storage facility in 2006, the property at 8925 St. Laurent Blvd. is in a densely populated area with more than 546,500 people within a five kilometer radius of the asset.

The property at 2707 Dollard Ave., in the Montreal borough of LaSalle, was converted to a self-storage facility in phases between 2006 and 2009. It is prominently displayed along Dollard Avenue, which has traffic counts of more than 20,000 cars per day.
