New Zealand's Hotel St. Clair sold to anonymous buyer

In Dunedin, New Zealand, the Hotel St. Clair has been sold in what the Otago Daily Times claims is a multimillion-dollar deal. Calder Stewart development director Alan Stewart did not share the price or name the purchasers, but he did tell the paper that "they were Koreans who moved to New Zealand in the early 2000s." 

"The purchaser has previously run successful hospitality businesses and will relocate to Dunedin to take over management," Stewart said.
