Seattle Skyscraper Sold to Hong Kong Firm

Yesterday, among all the hoopla over the GOP Debates, I came across this local headline: 

Seattle's Columbia Center sold to Hong Kong investors.

I'm not too keen on this, especially since China's building an "island aircraft carrier" in the South China Sea, among other things, like last year's student protests.

GAW Capital Partners is indeed a firm based in Hong Kong.  But this "special administrative region" has been ruled by the PRC (People's Republic of China) since the UK relinquished its lease in 1997. 

So all business decisions sooner or later may lead back to the PRC Politburo.

And it looks like the PRC Hong Kong land-grab will continue.
