Vertical Fields Capital LLC Property in Philadelphia Suburb Successfully Converted Into Self Storage Facility, Open for Business

Renovation of vacant building, addition of two others, in Clifton Heights/Primos area attracting strong lease interest.

Washington, DC, February 15, 2018 --( Following the completion of an ambitious multi-phase project, a formerly vacant single building in a Philadelphia suburb is now open for business as a comprehensive three-building self-storage facility, Vertical Fields Capital LLC announced Wednesday. The company, which purchased the 500 Mildred Avenue property in Primos, Pennsylvania, in 2016, added it has received its full Certificate of Occupancy – and there has already been strong customer move-ins.

“When we acquired this property, it was totally vacant, the former home of a local newspaper,” said Vertical Fields Founder and President Frederick McCarthy. “It is now a thriving self-storage property with multiple buildings offering a broad range of climate-controlled and direct-access units. The strategic improvements and extra capacity allows us to meet strong demand in this densely-populated Philadelphia suburb, an area with few quality self-storage options.”

The property now operates under the CubeSmart brand. It boasts over 81,500 net rentable square feet and 720 units split between internal, climate-controlled and direct-access self storage.

The project was partially funded with bank financing from WSFS Bank.
