Associate, Portfolio Management - Affordable Housing

Job Locations US-CA-Los Angeles

Blackstone is establishing a new portfolio company (“NewCo”) that will become a leading U.S. affordable housing platform. Newco is being formed in connection with the acquisition, by Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust (BREIT), of AIG’s 679-asset, 83,000-unit Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) multifamily portfolio (“Initial Portfolio”). The new company will be a real estate asset management business that oversees both the Initial Portfolio and Blackstone’s potential future acquisitions and developments in the sector.
