L+M, Invesco Partner on $1.2B Deal for Manhattan Apartments

L+M Development Partners and Invesco Real Estate are under contract to purchase and preserve five former Mitchell-Lama developments in Manhattan from Urban American and Brookfield Asset Management for $1.2 billion. The portfolio’s new owners plan to return more than 1,800 of the units to rent regulation in partnership with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation & Development.

Built between 1975 and 1970, the former Mitchell-Lama developments include River Crossing, the Heritage, the Miles and the Parker in East and Central Harlem, and Roosevelt Landings on Roosevelt Island. The 2.2 million-square-foot portfolio exited the Mitchell-Lama program in 2005.

A Cushman & Wakefield team of Adam Spies, Doug Harmon, Josh King, Adam Doneger, Michael Collins and Marcella Fasulo advised the sellers.

The deal was funded through the L+M Workforce Housing Fund, which completed fundraising earlier this year, raising roughly $500 million. L+M intends to invest the capital over the next several years.

Connect Texas Multifamily will take place August 15, 2019 in Dallas. For more information, or to register, click here.
