Andover Properties Closes on the “Stash Self Storage Portfolio” in Tucson for $30.3 Million

TUCSON, ARIZONA — Andover Properties, LLC (dba Storage King USA) has recently acquired a two-property portfolio in Tucson, increasing its footprint in the city to 5 properties. Combined, the two properties total over 200,000 NRSF across 1,750 units.

The assets fetched $30.3 million ($17,300 per unit) according to public records.

The properties, located at 4068 E Fort Lowell and 5650 W Coca Cola Place, are strategically situated within a 10–20-minute drive from each other and the three existing Storage King USA Tucson assets. Between them they have a complementary unit mix of multi- and single-story climate, drive-up, and parking units.

“This acquisition is a great win for our firm and reflects our commitment to clustering locations in strategic markets. We have now greatly expanded our footprint in Tucson, with a brand new Class A facility and another well-located facility” states Brian Cohen, Andover’s President.

Michael Wachsman, Andover’s Director of Acquisitions, adds, “Fort Lowell opened in June 2020 and has leased up at a tremendous rate, largely due to its Class A asset quality and preeminent position in the marketplace. Coca Cola Place is located near a busy shopping center which generates significant traffic to the area. Our business plan is to stabilize occupancy at Fort Lowell and bring in-place rents to that of the market for both properties.”
