The Ackman-Ziff Real Estate Group Arranges Financing
for Radisson Hotel Research Triangle Park

July 24, 2008 - Ackman-Ziff has arranged fixed-rate first mortgage financing for the Radisson Hotel Research Triangle Park, located in Durham, North Carolina.  The financing was provided by an international capital source.

The 198-room, full-service property was acquired in 2006 by a leading global real estate investor and fund manager with approximately $11 billion in equity commitments.  The Company’s aggressive asset management and the skilled management team increased NOI by more than 13% within a year of acquisition.  Additionally, the hotel is the only lodging property within Research Triangle Park, one of the country’s most prestigious high-tech research and development centers, a barrier to entry that further enhanced the overall appeal of the asset.
