Online publisher Vox Media Inc. has acquired the Curbed Network, which includes blogs Curbed, Eater and Racked.
New York-based Curbed Network is a group of websites. Curbed focuses on real estate news in regions around North America, including Boston, Cape Cod, Chicago, the Hamptons, New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, and others. Racked covers the retail industry, including sample sales and store openings, in major U.S. cities. Eater specializes in the food industry, covering restaurants, chefs and food in North America.
Deal terms remain undisclosed, but reports peg the total price at around $30 million.
Washington, D.C.-based Vox Media already owns SB Nation, a sports media website, the Verge, a website the reports on consumer technology, and Polygon, an online publication focused on video games.
The buyer was formed in November 2011, when SB National changed its name to Vox. The company continued to publish SB Nation and launched the Verge. The company has received $57.5 million in venture funding, from backers that include Accel Partners, Allen & Co., Comcast Ventures, Khosla Ventures, and Ted Leonsis, a former AOL president who now is the majority owner of sports teams Washington Capitals, the Washington Wizards and Washington Mystics.
