We are committed to ensuring that our projects have a positive impact on our constituent neighborhoods and community stakeholders.

We build reasonably-priced, high quality, workforce housing stock with necessary amenities for productive neighborhoods.

An LREP development project not only transforms the visual appeal of the neighborhood, but offers meaningful solutions and amenities that are embraced by the community-at-large. Our contributions support long-term appreciation as communities are redeveloped. This consistent, disciplined and proven approach to our investment strategy drives performance and maximizes returns for investors, while rallying strong community receptivity from city leaders and residents.

Today, we continue to utilize creativity in the development of real estate to maximize returns for investors while adding intentional value to the communities we serve. Recent projects include single, multifamily and commercial developments around and in the Philadelphia region. We invite you to partner with us for quality real estate solutions that meet our code of excellence, integrity, efficiency and high value.

LREP is committed to bringing tangible value to the investors, partners and the communities we serve. Our roots trace back to 1958, where our co-founder, physician and businessman Walter P. Lomax, Jr., MD converted a row home and grocery store in S. Philadelphia into a full-service community medical center. From these humble beginnings, Dr. Lomax built a six office 22 physician practice that was based upon a simple but powerful business philosophy: to provide high quality services within underserved communities. This same philosophy of delivering value in underserved markets permeates LREP’s strategies. Our fundamental approach is to utilize our principal's local market knowledge to create and execute unique investment opportunities with attractive risk/reward profiles.
