Hot on the recent news of Marshall Field's possible sale by Target, MetLife Inc., the former owners of the Sears Tower, disclosed yesterday that they are selling the building to a group of what the Sun-Times called "prominent but secretive Manhattan landlords." MetLife did not disclose the price of the deal, but did say that they would get a $90 million after-tax gain.
