Ron Moelis’ L+M Development Partners closed on a 100-unit affordable housing deal in East Harlem.

The real estate investment firm and its partner, Settlement Housing Fund, recently bought a controlling interest in a 100-unit apartment complex at 315 East 103rd Street and 330 East 104th Street in a deal that valued the property at $20 million, L+M said. The buyers simultaneously extended a current affordability agreement with the city’s Housing Development Corporation by 15 years, until 2060.

In a separate deal, L+M and its joint-venture partner Manhattan Valley Development Corporation refinanced two affordable apartment buildings at 12-22 West 109th Street and 133 West 104th Street with a $16 million mortgage from Citi Community Capital.

L+M bought a 90 percent stake in the Section 8 properties for $48.6 million in January 2017, signed a 40-year affordability agreement with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development and spent $4.1 million on capital improvements.

L+M runs a housing preservation fund with the stated mission “to acquire and rehabilitate properties at risk of becoming unaffordable to low-to-moderate-income households.”

The company recently bought the Dunwell Apartments Section 8 complex in Hamilton Heights for $43 million.
