Triad Real Estate Partners and Rittenhouse Realty Advisors Announce 955-Bed Student Housing Portfolio Listing in Upstate New York

ALBANY, N.Y., Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rittenhouse Realty Advisors and Triad Real Estate Partners are pleased to announce that the two firms have partnered together to market College Suites Portfolio - a five property, 955 bed / 291-unit portfolio of student housing at three different colleges in the Capital District of Upstate New York.

The College Suites Portfolio presents a rare opportunity to acquire a quality collection of Class A, purpose-built student assets, all of which are truly walkable to campus. All five of the properties are virtually across the street from their respective campuses - while two of the assets are master leased by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and serve as affiliated housing for upperclassmen, graduate, and married students. There are over 30,000 students enrolled within one mile of the Portfolio. 

Kenneth Wellar, Managing Partner at Rittenhouse Realty Advisors, noted that “City Station West and East have a combined 31,181 square feet of street-level retail space with close to 31% leased.  That’s over $200,000 of unrealized revenue annually.”

Ryan Tobias, Partner at Triad Real Estate Partners, added “All five properties have PILOT agreements with local taxing authorities that run through at least 2031. College Suites at Washington Square will not have to pay taxes on the full value of the asset until 2051, which equates to more cash flow for the new owner.”

Triad and Rittenhouse have teamed up in the past on similar assignments to combine their broad marketing platforms and student housing experience.
