CASTRO VALLEY, Calif., January 16, 2019 – Cushman & Wakefield announced the firm has completed the sale of Lockaway Storage in Castro Valley, California, a primarily residential community in the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, or East Bay. Located at 8555 Dublin Canyon Rd., the project contains 26,000 rentable square feet of storage area as well as 135 outdoor RV/boat parking spaces.

“Lockaway Storage – Castro Valley is a best-in-class asset located adjacent to Interstate 580 midway between Hayward and the Dublin/Pleasanton communities,” said Wells. “This strategic location has ensured the project maintains high occupancy (95%+) and will provide the buyer with excellent long term cash flow potential.”
