Oxford Development buys Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South

Pittsburgh-based Oxford Development has acquired the 179-room Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South hotel, reports the Pittsburgh Business Times. Speculation is that the hotel sold for around $3 million, per an Allegheny County deed transfer.

The price of the deal is reportedly less than the 2014 county-assessed value of $7 million. The sale price projects to $18,659 per room.

The seller was a Chicago-based investment fund called SageCrest.
