As a proud member of the L+M family of companies, which has been an active affordable developer and builder in the New York area for almost 40 years, LMXD’s focus is on complex, investment-driven, civically-impactful projects that seek to foster community, culture, and sustainability, and which advance the larger mission of L+M: “working together to build stronger communities”.
