A 652-unit self-storage facility in Chandler, AZ has sold for $8.35 million.

Phoenix-based 535 Wilmot Investors LLC purchased the 59,239-square-foot facility at 12220 E. Riggs Road from Lawhead Family LLC of Apache Junction. Denise Nunez and Victoria Filice of NAI Horizon represented the seller.

“The seller was specific that the property be quietly marketed. We sent the deal to 13 potential buyers, which generated five solid offers for a top negotiated price at a 4.8 cap rate on in-place income,” Ms. Nunez said in a press release. “The seller had original plans to develop out five concrete pads for additional climate-controlled and drive units. However, the seller never finished the project, which was built in 1999. The buyer, an Arizona LLC, will develop out the site in a market known for its difficulty for approving of self-storage.”

The facility features both drive-up and climate-controlled units as well as RV parking. In addition, there are six commercial retail store tenants on site.
