In the past 18 months, Will Hutton spearheaded more than $4 billion of transaction activity at Nightingale Properties and has been instrumental to Nightingale’s growth as a company. This includes more than $2 billion in 2019, spearheading the efforts that led to Nightingale being the largest privately owned landlord in Philadelphia, institutional equity joint-ventures with sovereign wealth funds, and notable acquisitions in New York City, where Nightingale is based.
The dollar volume Hutton has driven is one just one reason we chose him to be one of the New York 2020 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s fourth annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Colleagues say that what sets Hutton apart from other acquisition professionals are that he’s proven himself to be a unique identifier of real estate investments centering around unrealized potential and intrinsic value, and his ability to move swiftly in high-stakes situations. In New York, these include 300 Lafayette, in which Nightingale signed a contract to buy in 2017 as a vacant construction site and leased the property to Microsoft before closing in May 2019. Additionally, he led the acquisition, financing, and recapitalization efforts of the Coca-Cola Building at 711 Fifth Ave., the most notable trophy investment sale in Manhattan last year.
To top off a momentous 2019, Hutton lead the cash-out CMBS refinance efforts of 1500 Market St. in Philadelphia, and the acquisition of 111 Wall St. in Downtown Manhattan.
