Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has arranged financing and joint venture equity totaling $19.2 million for a two-property self storage portfolio totaling 1,106 units in Pennsylvania and closed the $11.65 million sale of one of the properties.

HFF arranged the $5 million joint venture equity partnership between Self Storage Capital Partners and a private equity firm and, on behalf of the partnership, placed the $14.2 million fixed-rate acquisition financing with Citigroup for Penns Trail Self Storage and Lanco Mini Self Storage. Additionally, working on behalf of the seller, All-Time Self Storage, HFF closed the sale of Penns Trail Self Storage. Self Storage Capital Partners purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.

Penns Trail Self Storage is a Class A, multi-story facility built in 2010. The stabilized, 495 unit facility was more than 95 percent occupied at the time of sale. Located at 104 Penns Trail in the eastern part of the Philadelphia suburb of Newton, Penns Trail Self Storage is situated in an affluent area with more than 127,000 residents living within a five-mile radius with a household income averaging more than $130,000 annually. The facility has easy access to Interstate 95.

Completed in 2006, the 611-unit Lanco Mini Storage is 88 percent leased. The property is located at 1813 Old Philadelphia Pike (Route 340) in Lancaster, a central Pennsylvania near Harrisburg. Situated within a large population center of more than 150,000 residents living within a five-mile radius, Lanco Mini Self Storage has visibility from an average of 15,970 vehicles per day along Route 340 and is just off U.S. 30 with direct access into Harrisburg.

The HFF team was led by managing director Richard Schontz, as well as managing directors James Conley and Scott Aiese, director Barbara Guffey and associate director Matthew Weckesser.

"The purchase of Penns Trail Self Storage represents a suburban Philadelphia record-setting price per square foot of $234,” Schontz said. “Pricing on this transaction was driven by limited supply, historically strong sector performance, and the execution on the sale, debt and equity placement by the HFF team.”

“The financing market for this transaction was very competitive yielding 12 quotes from an array of financing sources,” Conley added. “The strong lender interest for this assignment helped drive maximum leverage, I/O, and pricing for the borrower.”
