Beckman Family to Purchase Building in Downtown Chicago

October 14, 2009

Daily Real Estate Updates

sudler-sothebys-logo14 October 2009 ? Some good news – perhaps for all the margarita lovers in Chicago.

The Beckman family, makers of Jose Cuervo tequila, is expected to purchase a 310,540 square foot building at 303 W. Madison St. for approximately $60 million. The sale would be the first significant sale of a downtown office building this year and possibly the first time a Mexican investor has made a sizable real estate investment in the Chicago area.

The deal is scheduled to close Wednesday. The Beckman family paid upwards of over $2 million more for the building than sources had previously estimated.

Now we just need the Beckmans to rent space to some of the high-end Tex-Mex chefs in Chicago and we?ll have many Mexican delights under one roof. Bueno!
