Akelius Real Estate Management has closed on a pair of Park Slope deals for a total of roughly $35 million, sources told The Real Deal.

The U.S. arm of the Swedish real estate giant Akelius bought two contiguous buildings with 34 units at 181 and 182 Prospect Park West for $14.7 million, and it purchased seven contiguous buildings with 44 units at 409-421 14th Street for $20.75 million, according to sources familiar with the deal. The buildings contain a mix of rent-stabilized and free-market apartments.

Deepak and Neera Raj were the sellers of both sets of properties, according to records. They had purchased the Prospect Park West properties in 2015 for $11.7 million and the 14th Street properties in 2015 for $19 million.

Akelius has primarily been focused on Brooklyn rentals, but the firm made a pair of Manhattan purchases in August, picking up two adjacent rentals at 225 West 23rd Street and 220 West 24th Street for $100 million and closing on the roughly $61 million purchase of 321 East 22nd Street.
