Ancient City Capital Acquires Three-Property Student Housing Portfolio near FSU

JLL has closed the sale of a three-property, 470-unit and 1,152-bed student housing portfolio near Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

Stewart Hayes, Scott Clifton and Jack Goldberger of JLL represented the seller, FPA Multifamily. Ancient City Capital acquired the asset.

The portfolio includes the 168-unit The Hub at Tallahassee, the 168-unit The Social 1600 and the 134-unit The Social Tallahassee.  All three properties are located less than one mile from campus and are proximate to downtown Tallahassee. Additionally, residents have easy access to Target, Walgreens, CVS and popular restaurants near the communities.

“We are encouraged by the future growth prospects at Florida State University that will only benefit the student housing market in Tallahassee,” said Hayes. “This portfolio transaction demonstrates the liquidity for student housing properties in the high-growth, sunbelt region of the United States and further underpins the strong fundamentals in the sector as a whole.”
