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:

In Washington Heights, Avi Dishi spent $20.5 million for a 94,400-square-foot building with 87 units at 90 Laurel Hill Terrace, $18.2 million for a 61,200-square-foot building with 61 units at 475 West 186th Street and $15.3 million for a 59,500-square-foot building with 66 units at 480 West 187th Street.
