Our Story

Strengthening Communities

Building Opportunities.

Since Ron Moelis and Sandy Loewentheil founded L+M Development Partners in 1984, the company has been an innovator in developing quality affordable, mixed-income and market-rate housing, while strengthening the neighborhoods in which it works. In 2022, Lisa Gomez was appointed as L+M’s next CEO, Ron Moelis became the Chairman, and Sandy Loewentheil retired to focus on personal pursuits. This change marks the next stage in L+M’s evolution and anchors the company’s ongoing commitment to fostering economically diverse communities by developing mixed-income and mixed-use buildings throughout the Tri-state area, as well as expanding its affordable and preservation work into California, New Orleans and Washington, D.C.

L+M is on the cutting edge of urban development and workforce housing.

One of L+M’s core principles is that affordable housing goes hand in hand with social responsibility. We take pride in our long-standing dedication to the communities we serve and look to build relationships with exceptional organizations that are supporting their communities. L+M works closely with national and local government and financial institutions to create new programs that utilize private activity bonds and the as-of-right tax credits that accompany them. Because of our reputation for creative approaches to mixed-use and mixed-income developments as well as market-rate luxury housing, community leaders and government housing agencies consistently turn to L+M as the preferred choice for development partner and builder.
