The asset sold for $2,900,000.
Andrew Townsend, Clarke Talone, Ridge MacLaren and Fred Paisley, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Philadelphia office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a partnership. The buyer, a partnership, was also procured by Talone, Paisley, MacLaren, and Townsend. “Queen Lane Manor is a great asset that performed well over the years for the sellers. Ultimately, they decided to capitalize on the strong multifamily sales market and transacted in order to reposition their portfolio,” noted Paisley.
“Queen Lane Manor consistently experienced strong demand and maintained its high occupancy due to its proximity to Drexel Medical College and the SEPTA train station. The buyers were attracted to the building due to the fact that was a turnkey asset with upside thanks to the strong East Falls location,” added Talone.
Queen Lane Manor is located at 2809 West Queen Lane in Philadelphia, PA. The property is a mid-rise apartment building that was constructed in 1932, with a unit mix consisting of 16 studios, 23 one-bedroom units, and 2 two-bedroom units.
