Major multifamily deals stretched across Los Angeles County last month, with Blackstone’s purchase of a 100-unit apartment complex in Santa Fe Springs topping the Top 5 list.

Still, the February total of $121 million was less than a third of January’s $391 million in L.A. County. January’s total was propelled by Mack Real Estate Group’s $180.1-million purchase of a mixed-use building in Downtown L.A.
