Crossings at Mill Creek

Lancaster, Pa.—Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services has brokered the sale of Crossings at Mill Creek, a 338-unit, 327,604-square foot, garden-style asset located in Lancaster, Pa. The $22.7 million sales price represents $67,012 per unit.

“Crossings at Mill Creek sits in a strong Lancaster rental market and was offered free and clear of debt,” says Donald MacLaren, first vice president of investments at Marcus & Millichap. “The seller had done a nice job repositioning the property over the past several years and that allowed the asset to compete more effectively in the marketplace.”

MacLaren worked with senior associates Clarke Talone and Andrew Townsend in representing the seller, a large institution. The trio also secured the buyer, a local limited partnership.

Crossings at Mill Creek’s unit mix features 70 percent two- and three-bedroom apartments. Community amenities include two swimming pools, two playgrounds and laundry facilities.
