Asheville, N.C.—Strategic Storage Trust II Inc., sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management LLC, has purchased 11 self-storage facilities in North Carolina. The facilities are all located in the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area and provide easy access with grade level drive-up, climate-controlled and RV units. The purchase totaled 4,850 units, 76 buildings and 553,500 rentable square feet.

“Collectively these 11 properties have averaged an overall occupancy of 95 percent during 2016 and require little capital expenditure,” Michael Schwartz, chairman & CEO of SST II, said in prepared remarks. “The dynamics of this portfolio are a great balance to our existing self-storage facilities located throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
