Much like a lamb, mid-market investment activity slowed to a gentle crawl as the city entered the latter half of March.

The three largest portions of a $92 million multifamily portfolio deal in Washington Heights topped the list of investment sales between $10 million and $40 million recorded last week. In Hell’s Kitchen, Yevgeniy Lvovskiy’s ZHL Group picked up a development site, and in the Bronx, a landlord cashed out on an apartment building that hadn’t traded hands since the Nixon administration.

The deals fetched $88 million altogether, less than in recent weeks, and Brooklyn and Queens recorded no deals in the middle of the market. Below are more details:
