MIAMI-Related Group is in the final negotiating stages to purchase the 713-room Hilton Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. The Miami Herald reports that locally based Related Group and partners are working hard to strike an agreement with troubled seller Shubh Hotels LLC for the 50-year-old asset, which is Pittsburgh’s largest hotel.

The article notes that the Florida investors are being led by Jorge Perez of Related Group. Also on the buy side is Stephen Ross, majority Miami Dolphins owner and president and CEO of Related Cos. in New York City. Kiran Patel, a Tampa, FL-based cardiologist, is also on the team. The Miami Herald reports that financial details were not available, though if the deal is successful, the Florida partnership plans a $5 million capital investment for the 25-story hotel at 600 Commonwealth Place.
