A New York City-based storage operator has made its first foray into North Carolina.

Andover Properties, operator of the Storage King USA chain of facilities, bought a three-property portfolio in the Fayetteville, NC, area for $14.35 million. The deal closed April 23.

The facilities previously operated under the brand name AAA All-American Self Storage and were owned by J & J Real Estate Investments, based in Fayetteville.

The portfolio covers 223,520 square feet and includes more than 1,650 climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units. The facilities also feature boat and RV parking, and flex office space.

“We’re excited about this acquisition and think we can bring great value to the properties and surrounding area,” said Brian Cohen, president of Andover Properties.

Cohen said Andover plans to expand the facility at 4928 U.S. Highway 301 South by adding a 10,000-square-foot building within the next six months. The other purchased facilities, both in Fayetteville, are at 3216 Mid Pine Road and 5799 Pepperbush Drive (pictured above).

Storage King USA now has 15 facilities. Aside from North Carolina, its facilities are in Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
