Vista Tower Chicago Condos After a six-year partnership, one of the developers behind the Vista Tower is buying out its majority partner for $270 million. Wanda Hotel Development recently agreed to sell its own 90-percent stake in the building to an affiliate of its Chicago partner to cut debt.

Previously, Magellan Development Group owned just 10-percent of the project. The Chinese partner had been looking for a buyer for its stake in the property for at least two years. The on-going pandemic has made its current financial woes even more challenging. 

The $270 million buyout accounts for Wanda’s equity stake in the estimated $1 billion condo and hotel project. Wanda and Magellan collectively financed construction of the tower with a $700 million loan.

Walton is one of Chicago’s hottest luxury condo buildings right now, consider the fact that Chicago Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward just unloaded his posh, 19th floor condo inside the building for a cool $7.6 million in just 12 days—a time when the luxury market all over the country, and especially in Chicago, is a little less than robust.

As you’ve probably already read, Heyward first purchased the condo back in 2018 for $6.8 million, which at the time was one of the most expensive homes a Chicago athlete bought outright.

But in a building where other CEOs and high-profile athletes also call home, it’s easy to see what the building itself is also on another level in terms of luxury appeal and desirability.
