Cocktail Party with Case Study:

What’s the Nightly Rate at that Office Building?

Thursday, April 30, 2015

5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Hyatt Centric the Loop Chicago – Charles Yerkes Ballroom

100 West Monroe, Chicago

REIA Member $75 – Non-Member $85

Onsite Registration or after 4/27/15 – REIA Member $85 – Non-Member $95

Beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres included

Come network at our cocktail party and join us for an interesting case study about our venue. When thinking about downtown office projects, developers are abandoning cap rates, psf rental rates and TI cost assumptions.  Rather, they are focusing on RevPAR, brand standards and F&B margins.  This month we will focus on the booming trend of converting office product into hotels.  John Murphy will discuss how he and his team converted 100 West Monroe from a Class B office building into the new Hyatt Centric Hotel.  We will be on site to see the transformation in three dimensions.  Space is limited, so sign up now!

Guest Speaker: John T. Murphy, Chairman & C.E.O., MAM, LLC

Moderator: Thomas Jaros, Levenfeld Pearlstein, LLC and REIA Director
