National Storage Centers – Alpine II –This former CubeSmart managed property has 79,225 sq. ft. and 754 units. Through a complex and lengthy lot split process, Pogoda combined this property with the neighboring Alpine I. This 3-story Class A facility was built in 2020 and offers an indoor drive through for customer convenience and is currently 46% occupied.

National Storage Centers – Canton Joy Road – Located between Ann Arbor and Detroit, the 59,400 sq. ft. 460-unit location was purchased off-market. It has been transformed through a substantial capital expenditure program that included new doors, painting, gutters, a relocated and new swing gate and computerized access, as well as a completely remodeled office/apartment. Occupancy sits at 91%.

National Storage Centers – Livonia West – is our third location in the Livonia submarket. The long-term goal is to add 15-20,000 sq. ft. to this 26,161 sq. ft., 236-unit facility.
