MIAMI BEACH, FLA. — A joint venture between SHVO, Bilgili Holding and Deutsche Finance America has purchased the Raleigh Hotel in Miami for $103 million. The 83-room hotel is situated in South Beach, about 10 miles east of downtown Miami, and is known for its beachside swimming pool that Life Magazine called “the most beautiful pool in America” in 1947. Designer Tommy Hilfiger and Dogus Group, a Turkish conglomerate, sold the asset, which it has owned since 2014. The joint venture bought the asset in all cash in partnership with a number of Germany’s largest institutions, including Bayerische Versorgungskammer (BVK), Germany’s largest manager of public pension schemes.
