Concord Summit Capital (“CSCap”), has formed and launched Concord Summit Fund-1, headquartered in Miami, Florida, as its first real estate investment platform to deploy capital. Concord Summit Fund-1 has formed strategic alliances with its two principals, Concord Wilshire Capital and Summit Investment Management, as well as other strategic partners, to develop innovative, state-of-the-art self-storage facilities in select markets in the U.S. (“Strategic Alliance”) under their Concord Summit Storage flag. The Strategic Alliance will identify, finance, re-finance, develop, construct, manage and sell ground-up or existing self-storage facilities and related mixed-use properties. Concord Summit Storage plans to invest in and develop 40 facilities over the next four years at a total cost of approximately $480 million. Concord Summit Fund-1 will provide the equity capital and obtain structured financing for its facilities. The fund will also provide rescue capital for existing self-storage facilities and equity capital for other strategic real estate investments.
On August 25, 2021, Concord Summit Storage acquired interest in two facilities located in Atlanta, Georgia, and has since entered into agreements to acquire and develop five additional self-storage facilities: Two in the Atlanta MSA, two in the Tampa Bay MSA and one in the Boston MSA, at a total estimated cost of $92.5 million. Of that, $22 million will receive equity capital from Concord Summit Fund-1 and $70.5 million will be funded with structured financing. Concord Summit Storage will engage a leading self-storage facility operator and brand franchise in the U.S. to manage the facilities.
“Over the last decade, the self-storage industry has consistently performed throughout economic cycles and outperformed all other commercial real estate sectors, with average returns of over 20%. According to Mordor Intelligence Research, the valuation of the self-storage market reached $87.65 billion USD in 2019 and will grow to $115.62 billion by 2025. We have plenty of aggressive debt and equity capital available for this market,” said Kevin O’Grady, Managing Director of CSCap.
