Storage Corner Group has landed $7.7 million in permanent financing for the 60,000-square-foot Uptown Storage in Salt Lake City and the 75,000-square-foot Central Storage & Business Park in St. George, Utah. Director Charlie Kokernakof of Gantry secured the 7-year, fixed-rate loan, funded by one the firm’s correspondent lenders.
In the past year, Gantry has been active in the self storage market. In May, the firm secured $130 million in financing for six facilities totaling 600,000 rentable square feet on behalf of Trojan Storage. The firm’s activity also included four mortgages totaling $120 million for the construction, repositioning and stabilization of nine assets across four states, transactions that closed in July.
