Greystone Furnishes $14M CMBS on Torrance Self-Storage

Greystone has provided a $14,000,000 CMBS loan to refinance an 801-unit self-storage property, SOS Storage Center, in Torrance. The financing was originated by Anthony Cristi, managing director at Greystone.

The first mortgage, provided at 59.6% loan-to-value, includes a 10-year term with interest-only payments.

The property was originally constructed in 1992 as an office property. The sponsor converted it to a self-storage facility in 2008. It includes 801 self-storage units made up of predominantly standard and climate-controlled units, and also features vault storage and wine storage units, across a total of 79,515 square feet.

“The L.A. market is prime for self-storage investment, and premier operators such as SOS Storage Center have built a reputation as a high-quality, in-demand service provider to this area,” said Cristi.

Connect Orange County will take place Sept. 27, 2023 at VEA | Newport Beach Marriott in Newport Beach, concurrently with Connect Healthcare Real Estate on Sept. 27 and 28. Click here to register for Connect Orange County, and here to register for Connect Healthcare Real Estate.
