JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured a floating rate construction loan on behalf of Central Southwest Texas Development, LLC (CSW Development). The loan will be used to develop a 1,311-unit, Class A self-storage facility in Houston.
Senior Vice President Griffin Guthneck and Vice President CW Sheehan led the JLL team on the financing.
“Self storage has proven itself to be a defensive asset class that remains stable through economic cycles,” said Guthneck. “There is still quite a bit of demand for quality self-storage product and capital is available to well-located, institutional-quality projects.”
The site is located at 10411 Westheimer Road within Houston’s prominent Westchase submarket, an established business district surrounded by dense, affluent residential neighborhoods including Briar Forest, Memorial Villages and Briar Meadow. The average annual household income within a 3-mile radius of the project is approximately $91,300.
The five-story, 132,350-square-foot self-storage facility will be at the center of Houston’s population growth. Total population within a 3-mile radius of the project grew 17 percent from 2000 to 2018 and now stands at nearly 200,000 people. It is expected to grow an additional 5.7 percent in the next five years.
Near the intersection of Beltway 8 and Westheimer Road, the property will benefit from excellent access and visibility, with more than 131,000 vehicles passing by each day on Beltway 8 alone.
