Why Self-Storage?

Passive Commercial Income Investing

Coda was established in 1998 as a real estate development, architectural, and construction management firm. Back then, we were primarily in the residential market, but had began entering the mixed-use arena.

After the financial crash in 2009, we became more involved commercial real estate – and Coda Design + Build and Coda Management Group were born.

In the beginning, Coda Management Group was established to manage a portfolio of commercial assets. It began with multi-family, then commercial flex space, and eventually self-storage became the bulk of our portfolio.

In 2020, as a response to marketplace needs – we established One Stop Self Storage – our management arm for our storage facilities.
