With fewer than five years under its belt, A&E Real Estate Holdings, led by Douglas Eisenberg, is already one of New York City’s most prominent multifamily investors. Founded in 2011 after Eisenberg departed from father Philip’s Urban American Property Management, A&E amassed a building portfolio totaling $433 million in just its first two years in business. In 2015 alone, the company has acquired over $800 million in residential properties across the five boroughs, with the biggest deal coming in the form of a 32-building portfolio acquisition priced at $360 million. In all, the company has assets totaling about $2 billion and owns around 100 buildings across the city.

Now A&E is buying the affordable housing complex known as Riverton Houses in Harlem, a $201 million deal with the complex’s current manager, CWCapital Asset Management. In order to qualify for significant tax abatements and other incentives valued at about $100 million, A&E will enter a deal with the city that keeps 975 of Riverton’s 1,229 apartments affordable for the next 30 years.
