More than 35 years ago, Westport began as a Southern California development company focusing on the self-storage space. In 2015, we surpassed 10 million square feet under management, with storage facilities in 15 states. The company has since evolved into a multi-vertical real estate investment and management company, with many high-profile and respected institutional and private investors.
Today, we’re just as driven, striving each day to be the gold-standard owner/operator across our asset classes of self-storage, residential, and industrial real estate.
Our purpose—the reason we exist—is to create places and communities that enhance people’s lives. This focus has earned Westport outstanding returns: a sterling reputation, exceptional results, and the respect of our peers.
Close alignment with our investors illustrates our ability to provide them with a balance of solid wealth preservation and net-worth building, enabling us to keep long-term investors on board and support growth over our lifespan. We have turned many investments from acquisitions or building a facility to selling and/or exchanging into new investments, allowing our investors to participate and be rewarded in these full cycle transactions. At the same time, we’ve maintained a large portfolio of income-producing assets, enabling us to maintain a best-in-class operating platform.
Through our interactions, our thought leadership, and charitable contributions, we’ve earned the respect of our partners, the wider industry—and those working alongside us at Westport.
