Trinity Real Estate and Norges Bank selected Hines to operate their $3.55 billion Hudson Square portfolio.

The Houston-based Hines, developer of 7 Bryant Park and the supertall MoMA luxury condo tower at 53 West 53rd Street, will pay about $35 million to acquire a 1 percent stake in the 11-building portfolio, according to Crain’s.

The company will earn fees for leasing and managing the properties, though details of the compensation were not disclosed.

The 5 million-square-foot portfolio of commercial buildings is valued at $3.55 billion after Trinity sold the Norwegian sovereign wealth fund Norges a 44-percent stake in the 75-year ground lease covering the properties.

After inking the deal, Trinity and Norges launched a search for a property management partner that drew interest from the likes of Hines, RXR Realty, Silverstein Properties and Tishman Speyer. Representatives from the companies made presentations on their proposals earlier this month.
