A new self-storage facility is rising in Stoney Creek.
The vacant site, at 365 Fruitland Rd., was acquired earlier this year by Strategic Storage Growth Trust, sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management.
The facility on 3.7 acres (1.5 hectares) will be developed into approximately interior-loaded 780 units in a climate controlled, two-storey building. Completion is expected in late 2017.
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
