Canadian Commercial Ventures (CCV) is focused on building a portfolio of professionally managed Self-Storage facilities across Western Canada and the United States. This portfolio is being built through a combination of new development, acquisition, and conversion. Our vision is to combine strong financial backing with expertise in the management and operation of facilities to create a portfolio of first class facilities.
CCV is part of a larger investment group focused on Self-Storage. In addition to allowing CCV to access both institutional and private equity, this partnership allows CCV to bring added value to both investors and potential acquisition partners. Along with expertise in real estate development, the group has access to some of the best tax, legal, and estate planning minds in Western Canada. This allows CCV to provide value added advice to potential acquisition partners when structuring deals.
Our commitment is to bring professional management to each of our facilities. In addition to consolidating all facilities under one umbrella, CCV brings modern, professional management to the portfolio. From internet presence and marketing, through to unit mix and ancillary sales, CCV’s mandate is to maximize the efficiency and revenue potential of each location.
