The 3.7-acre site will house a two-story storage facility totaling approximately 81,600 square feet. The building, which will offer interior loaded and 100 percent climate controlled units, is expected to be completed in late 2017.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
