Skift Take

Although Blackstone is only publicly speaking about commercial real estate now, it's hard to imagine that the private-equity giant won't look to unload a few of its 185,000 rooms -- or even the Hilton chain itself.

Private-equity firm Blackstone Group LP is preparing to unload its portfolio of U.S. office buildings, a move that would signal that one of the property sector’s most active buyers is moving into a selling phase as top office markets recover.

Blackstone is leaning toward selling the portfolio, which analysts have valued as high as $22 billion, in regional parcels, according to real-estate executives who have discussed the matter with the firm.
