Our Investment Philosophy and Targets

SDG is focused on providing investors with high growth potential as well as long-term, stable income. We achieve that goal by utilizing a multi-level investment strategy, which includes the development of facilities built from the ground up as well as the purchasing of existing assets.

Ground Up Development

  • We look for the best locations with retail exposure
  • High traffic locations
  • Growing residential communities in the trade area
  • We target our underwriting toward the following criteria:
    • Stabilized Yield of 9%
    • Targeted IRR Range of 18-25%
    • Targeted Equity Multiple of 1.5 to 2.5 X


Existing Facilities

Our intent is to provide safe and stable returns from existing and proven cash-flowing properties as well as the opportunity for high returns and the wealth creation typically seen with ground up development or existing cash-flowing assets that offer added-value.


Targeted Portfolio Profile:

  • Land for existing ground-up development properties.
  • Existing Self Storage facilities in secondary and tertiary markets with a “story”.


Core Strategies:

  • Ground-up development
  • Existing added-value acquisitions in tertiary and secondary markets.


Investor Profile:

  • Accredited investors
