Hyatt's Andaz 5th Avenue sells for $215.2M to Japan’s Takenaka Corporation

An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation has sold New York City’s Andaz 5th Avenue Hotel to Japan’s Takenaka Corporation (TAK Development, Inc.). The selling price was reported at $215.2 million, or almost $1.2 million per room. Both parties handled the direct sale in-house. 

The acquisition marks Takenaka's entry into the New York City hospitality market, though it owns several other New York assets as well as hotel properties across the globe, including a Hyatt hotel in Hawaii. 

Hyatt will continue to manage the hotel under its Andaz brand, pursuant to a long-term management agreement with the new owner. As of July 2016, the hotel is reported to be operating at near full occupancy with rates in the $500 range, placing it in-line with comparable area properties.
