After months of talks, SL Green Realty is officially buying a stake in HNA Group’s office building 245 Park Avenue.

The size of SL Green’s stake and the price paid is unknown as of now, however a person knowledgeable of the deal told the Wall Street Journal that SL Green had operating control of the property as well as a preferred position in its joint venture.

The Chinese conglomerate originally bought the building for $2.2 billion last year with $1.8 billion of debt. Months ago, HNA was reportedly looking into debt recapitalization of the building.

Eastdil Secured’s Evan Layne, Mark Chu and David Lazarus are representing HNA in the deal.

HNA has been under pressure from Chinese government to sell its U.S. assets and has unloaded several properties over the first half of 2018 including 123 Mission Street in San Francisco and 1180 Sixth Avenue in New York–both of which were sold to Northwood Investors. In April, Northwood was also said to be interested in buying 245 Park. [WSJ] — Erin Hudson
