Dunleer Sells Vacant Los Angeles Land Assemblage Slated for Apartment Development

Dunleer, LLC (“Dunleer”), a Los Angeles-based private real estate investment and development firm, announced the sale of a land assemblage located in the up-and-coming Echo Park submarket in Los Angeles. The parcel included a Letter of Determination from the City of Los Angeles to build 34 apartment units.

Given the proximity to major transit corridor‘s, Dunleer was able to increase the allowable height and density of the project. The developable land is located in one of Los Angeles's premier submarkets, Echo Park, and is only a few minutes driving distance to downtown Los Angeles or Hollywood. 

BJ Turner, Founder of Dunleer, said the transaction "was an example of Dunleer providing extraordinary risk-adjusted returns for investors. This trade yielded an unlevered 1.63x multiple net to investors. After we acquired the site in 2015, we were able to accurately forecast the significant demand the Echo Park submarket would soon experience, and we were able to work with the city to provide solutions for an attractive infill development that would add apartment unit count to a region the City of Los Angeles wanted to densify. Furthermore, we were delighted to forecast the inclusion of units reserved for affordable housing, especially given the shortage of affordable housing unit count in the City of Los Angeles."

Newly planned and proposed developments are experiencing cumbersome government approval processes, a lack of developable land and increased construction costs, which all culminate in limited new development projects. "The city of Los Angeles is in dire need of more housing supply and we were happy to help by providing more market rate and affordable units in the wonderful city of Los Angeles,” BJ Turner said. A limited pipeline of competing multifamily properties and a high barrier to entry for new multifamily development makes the Echo Park and Silver Lake submarkets extremely supply constrained, despite continued demand increases.
