22 W Washington Fetches $183.5M
Twenty years ago we would have been out at Skate on State on Block 37, but today, there are far more profitable assets on the site. Prudential Real Estate Investors closed on its purchase of 22 W Washington, PREI’s Catherine Marcus tells us. The building kicked off the reconstruction of the once-vacant block about five years ago. The $183.5M purchase is part of PREI’s core PRISA fund, an open-ended fund that began in 1970.
 
22 W Washington
The 480k SF building’s location and two major tenants (Morningstar and CBS) attracted PREI to the property, Catherine says. Sellers Golub & Co and BlackRock tried to sell the building over the summer, but an investor who had planned to pay $188M for the property pulled out in the midst of stock market troubles. PREI paid all cash for the building, which houses Regus office spaces and the CBS street-side studio across from Daley Plaza. Golub will remain the property manager.
