Brothers Mahmood and Mehdi Khimji: The quiet hotel powerhouse

Brothers Mahmood and Mehdi Khimji: The quiet hotel powerhouseAs investors in the sector retreat, Highgate has doubled down, becoming Manhattan’s most active (and under-the-radar) buyer

Brothers Mahmood and Mehdi Khimji — the company’s founders — have made $500 million-plus NYC hotel acquisitions in the past year with a rotating cast of partners. According to real estate data firm Real Capital Analytics, the company dropped about $1 billion nationally on hotel acquisitions during that same time.

Between December 2016 and December 2017 alone, the firm bought the 600-plus-room Affinia Manhattan on Seventh Avenue in the 30s, the Royalton New York on West 44th Street, the Nyma on West 32nd and the Gansevoort Park Avenue.

The under-the-radar company is indisputably the most active hotel buyer in Manhattan today.
