Andover Properties Closes on “Bagdad Mini Warehouses” in Milton, FL
Andover Properties, LLC (dba Storage King USA) has recently acquired Bagdad Mini Warehouses in Milton, FL marking its fifth acquisition in the greater Pensacola area and 25th facility in the state.
The property is 37,000 NRSF with an even mix of climate-controlled units and drive-up units, in addition to 93 outdoor parking spaces. The property, built in 2004, sits on 7.93 acres with frontage along Garcon Point road and has benefited from a growing surrounding population. The facility also has a robust U-Haul rental business which drives significant traffic. “This facility is a great bolt-on acquisition for us with the ability to double the footprint of the existing facility size, and further adding to our goal of creating a stronghold in this key market” states Brian Cohen, Andover’s President.
Michael Wachsman, Andover’s Director of Acquisitions, adds, “The seller was a mom-and-pop operator, who despite spending virtually nothing on marketing and having a website that could not process online rentals, has managed to maintain very high occupancy over the years. Our plan is to dedicate significant funds to beautify the property and implement a comprehensive marketing and rate management program to move in-place rents toward the market.”
