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.
