21 Jan Andover Properties Closes on “Savannah Self Storage” in Georgia
Andover Properties, LLC (dba Storage King USA) in partnership with Angelo Gordon has recently acquired Savannah Self Storage in Savannah, Georgia, marking its first purchase in the state.
The property consists of a mix of climate controlled and drive up units, as well as a car wash, an amenity which Andover has on other properties in its portfolio as well. According to Brian Cohen, Andover’s President, “We’re excited to be entering a new market, and feel we can benefit from purchasing an asset at a good basis with additional upside potential.” Savannah Self Storage is located right off I-516, which sees 57,000+ vehicles per day, sits on 3.41 acres, was constructed between 1996-2002, and spans 45,650 net rentable square feet across 376 drive-up and climate-controlled units. “The site can use more active management and marketing, and rates are below market relative to its competitors”, he explains. “In addition to bringing rates more in line with those of the market, we hope to generate value from either operating the car wash more efficiently – it doesn’t even have a website – or from tearing it down and in its place building more self storage units.”
The site will be integrated into the Storage King USA portfolio. New York City-based Andover Properties owns and operates self-storage facilities in Florida, Georgina, Maryland, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee and Virginia under its trade name Storage King USA (storagekingusa.com).
