Marcus & Millichap recently negotiated the sale of four class A student-housing assets spread across multiple states for $148.5 million.

The approximately 1.3 million-square-foot portfolio comprises 1,212 units and 3,409 beds located in Gainesville, Fla.; San Marcos, Texas; Columbia, Mo.; and Athens, Ga.

Excelsior LaSalle Property Fund purchased the properties from St. Augustine, Fla.-based FortGroup Development Corp. The assets were complete between 2001 and 2007, with unit prices for the portfolio averaging $122,525 per unit and $114.59 per square foot.

The portfolio consists of the 504-unit Cabana Beach at 1601 SW 51st Terrace in Gainesville, Fla.; the 276-unit Cabana Beach at 1250 Sadler Drive in San Marcos, Texas; the 192-unit Campus Lodge at 2900 Old Highway 63 South in Columbia, Mo.; and the 240-unit Lodge of Athens at 211 North Ave. in Athens, Ga.

All four properties are currently being operated on a bed-basis rental program, with individual leases for each bedroom. The majority of the rental units were two-, three- and four-bedroom units, each with their own bathroom and separate keyed entries for the students.

Each of the properties features extensive amenities packages with large average weighted-unit sizes in excess of 1,300 square feet.
