Palomar Hotel in Dallas could be changing hands

Will the 198-room Palomar in Dallas have a new owner soon? Could be, reports Dallas News. The hotel is owned by a company controlled by Addison, Texas-based investor Behringer Harvard, who earlier this month entered into an agreement with an outside investor to buy the hotel for $48 million. This according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The undisclosed buyer has already put up $1 million in "earnest money" toward the transaction, and has until the end of June to drop out of the deal without losing the cash.

Behringer Harvard in 2005 formed a partnership to redevelop the derelict Hotel Santa Fe into a mixed-use project with luxury accommodations, condos and retail space.
