Orange, California October 19, 2017 – Store Here, LLC, a joint venture between certain affiliates of Westport Capital Partners LLC (“Westport”) and Store Here Management LLC, has sold 27 assets in Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana, Indiana, Kansas and Texas.

“In less than three years, we were able to execute a bold plan. We believed we could assemble a well-positioned portfolio of properties with high value upside; I am also so proud of all the hard work our team has put into creating our world-class owner/operator platform.  Working alongside Westport Capital Partners, we applied our seasoned storage experience and have proven to be a viable force in the industry.” said James J. Hanrahan, Acquisitions Director of RHW Capital Management Group, LLC.

“Because of the nature of the fragmented market, we felt taking the programmatic approach to acquiring a portfolio was the best route for our platform. Partnering with Store Here Management for our entry into the self storage industry proved to be a great partnership and one we look forward to continuing,” said Sean Armstrong, Principal at Westport.

“The sale is the culmination of hard work and belief in a vision that the market would have a strong appetite for our portfolio,” said Russel Bernard, Managing Principal of Westport. Starting in March 2014 with an acquisition in San Antonio Texas and finishing in March 2017 with a transaction in Shreveport Louisiana, the venture created a group of quality assets with over 1.6 million rentable square feet and over 12,000 storage units.

Charleston, SC, September 6, 2017 – A joint venture owned by North Signal Capital LLC and a fund managed by Westport Capital Partners LLC, has purchased two industrial sites at North Pointe Commerce Park, www.northpointecommercepark.com.The Joint Venture plans to develop the sites, collectively referred to as “North Pointe Commerce Park”, into a speculative building and a build-to-suit.

“The development plan will bring much-needed supply to support Charleston’s thriving economy.

“The sites are strategically located in close proximity to the port, airport, interstate highways and the US naval installation known as SPAWAR. As a result, the properties will appeal to a diverse set of industries, including: aerospace and defense, automotive, information technology, life sciences and logistics” said Peter Goulding, Partner, North Signal Capital LLC.

Colliers International represented WestRock, the seller, in the transaction.
