Murphy Development Group sold the Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago Hotel to Deka Immobilien for $110 million. 

The hotel is centrally located in Chicago’s Loop in the heart of the financial district and within walking distance to transportation, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Located 28 minutes from O’Hare International Airport, the building is within close proximity to attractions such as the Chicago Board of Trade, State Street, the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, Museum Campus and Willis Tower.

The HFF investment sales team of Senior Managing Directors Jaime Fink and Jeffrey Bramson, Senior Director Jeff Bucaro and Associate Nicole Aguiar, represented the seller. 

“Hyatt Centric is an excellent example of the strong demand by global investors’ desire to acquire high quality real estate assets in the Chicago CBD,” Fink told Commercial Property Executive.
