HFF has arranged $150 million in financing for Joe Mansueto’s Mansueto Properties toward its acquisition of the Wrigley Building, which became a done deal just before the July 4 holiday. Mansueto Properties did not disclose financial terms of its acquisition of the iconic two-tower property from a consortium led by BDT Capital Partners; published reports put it at $255 million.
Managing Director Stephen Skok of HFF worked on Mansueto Properties’ behalf to secure the 30-year, fixed-rate acquisition financing through a major life insurance company. “The Wrigley Building is an iconic symbol of Chicago, which will serve as a long-term, generational real estate investment for Mansueto Properties,” Skok said.
Mansueto, who once again made headlines this week by taking a 49% stake in the Chicago Fire soccer franchise, commented, “We are committed to preserving the legacy of this building, and ensuring that it remains a vital part of Chicago’s growth well into the future.”
