Magic Johnson-led joint venture buys Hilton Washington hotel

San Jose Mercury News - San Jose, CA, USA - An investment fund partly owned by former NBA superstar Earvin "Magic" Johnson has teamed up with a real estate company to purchase the Hilton Washington hotel from Hilton Hotels Corp. for $290 million, the companies said Thursday.

Johnson's Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund and Los Angeles-based Lowe Enterprises Investors signed a long-term agreement with Hilton Hotels to manage the hotel, which has played host to world leaders and others visiting the U.S. capital since opening in 1965.

Canyon-Johnson and Lowe have also agreed to invest more than $100 million to renovate the hotel beginning in the third quarter, the firms said.

The deal gives Canyon-Johnson a majority stake in the hotel. The fund is a joint venture between Canyon Capital Realty Advisors and Johnson.
