A three-party joint venture called the Essential Housing Impact Partnership — formed by The Michaels Organization, Goldman Sachs Asset Management's Urban Investment Group, and the Community Development Trust — completed a $1.2 billion acquisition of 90 affordable housing communities with a combined 10,000 units. That works out to $120,000 per unit.

The properties were acquired from Harmony Housing and managed by Greystone Property Management Corporation. They are across eight states: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, South Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin. Michaels will manage all of them.
