The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, one of the three large-yacht marinas near the 17th Street Causeway bridge, has been sold.

Various news outlets have reported the sale by Blackstone Group to Thayer Lodging Group, a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management. The nine-acre property, which has a 589-room hotel and 33-slip marina, reportedly sold for $170.6 million. Thayer also owns the Diplomat Beach Resort on Hollywood beach.

New York City-based Blackstone once owned Bahia Mar Yachting Center a little farther north up the ICW (which it sold in 2014) and Pier 66 directly across the ICW (which it sold in 2016).
