Ascott REIT, managed by Ascott Residence Trust, has acquired the Sheraton Tribeca New York Hotel for $158 million.
Following the acquisition, the 369-room hotel located at 350 and 370–372 Canal Street in Manhattan will continue to be managed by FC-Canal Management, the seller, and as a Sheraton brand hotel.
The acquisition is Ascott REIT’s second acquisition in the United States.
