in today’s South China Morning Post (SCMP).

The report states

per cent stake in a building near the Arc de Triomphe, for redevelopment as a
Peninsula hotel.

housing the city’s Majestic Hotel but more recently serving as the Kleber International Conference
Centre. The project is due
for completion in 2012.

with its current portfolio limited to eight properties in Asia and the US. It’s
