NKF’s Student Housing group, led by Ryan Lang, leads the country when it comes to student investment sales, offering clients unparalleled access to global capital through overseas partners, and a fully integrated debt and equity platform. The group’s 1.3 billion in transactions totaled 12,800 beds in 2019.
The sales of Skyloft at the University of Texas-Austin broke records for the highest price per unit in the history of Austin. Skyloft, in fact, was the largest, single-asset, student-housing transaction for 2019. The group also facilitated the sale of SOVA, adjacent to Kennesaw State University, bringing in another huge price, and representing another large single-asset student-housing sale for the year. These sales, and others, broke per-unit and per-bed pricing records, while also setting cap rate records throughout college submarkets.
