Aqua lands a hotel
By: Thomas A. Corfman May 25, 2009


...Kimpton Group Holding LLC, a San Francisco boutique hotel firm, is in negotiations to buy 15 floors in the wavy, 82-story tower two blocks north of Millennium Park, where residents began moving in this month.

...Key to the transaction is $28 million in earnest money that Strategic forfeited and which allowed Chicago-based Magellan to cut the sale price. To further sweeten the deal, Magellan will let Kimpton spread out purchase payments and make them partly contingent on the hotel's success, sources say. Because Kimpton stresses its upscale eateries, it also would get a prime restaurant space, sources say.

...To boost revenues, Kimpton intends to increase the number of rooms from the 225 originally planned.
