Trizec Properties, Inc. (NYSE: TRZ[1]), previously known as TrizecHahn Corporation (TSE and NYSE:[2] TZH[3]), was a real estate investment trust (REIT) company headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.[4] It was historically a Canadian company.[5]

Prior to the 2006 acquisition by Brookfield Properties, the owner was Peter Munk.[6]

History[edit]

The company was founded in 1923.[4]

In the 1980s Trizec acquired The Hahn Company and changed its name to Trizec Hahn.[7]

By early 2000 80% of Trizec Hahn's revenues originated from the United States. For that reason, the company moved its headquarters to Chicago and sold all holdings it held in Canada. At a later point its name changed back to Trizec.[7]

In 1997 it acquired the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower) in Chicago for $70 million with payment of an additional $40 million for a garage next door.[8]

In 2001 it sold some noncore assets for $417 million, with $238 million remaining after it made payments on the debt.[5]

By 2002 the company was still selling Canadian assets, and it also was selling European assets. Its new focus was American high rise, urban office towers. In 2002 the company received permission to convert to an REIT. Trizec Properties Inc. was to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange and Trizec Canada was to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange.[9]

In 2006 Brookfield Properties and Blackstone Group acquired the company. The payment price was $4.8 billion and the new owners assumed debts of $4.1 billion.[6]

Corporate affairs[edit]

When it was Canada-based, the headquarters were in Toronto.[8] It once had its headquarters in the BCE Place.[10]

The company at one time had its headquarters at Suite 4600 of the Sears Tower in the Chicago Loop area of Chicago.[11] It later moved to the Near West Side.[12]
