PUBLISHED: 09:03 30 March 2018 Caroline Culot Cotman Road, Norwich. Pic: Cat Scoles. Is it the most expensive semi in the city? Property editor Caroline Culot went to visit 34, Cotman Road, for sale for a guide price of £1 million with Jackson-Stops. Cotman Road, Norwich. Pic: Cat Scoles. It says something about house prices in the city when a semi detached house goes on the market for £1 million that’s not in the Golden Triangle - but when you see the house in question, you can see why it commands that price tag. Cotman Road, Norwich. Pic: Cat Scoles. But whatever the national doom and gloom merchants are saying regarding house prices, Norwich seems fairly insulated against the kinds of corrections predicted for London and we are still enjoying a buoyant market - just there is less of it, with fewer properties on the market.

HNA Group Co.’s scrapped initial public offering of its Swiss airline caterer dialed up the pressure for the embattled conglomerate as it seeks to raise about $16 billion during the first half of the year to reduce one of the biggest debt piles in corporate China.The IPO of Gategroup Holding AG would have raised between $917 million and $1.4 billion for HNA but investors balked at the price and the lack of clarity as to what the Chinese group would do with its remaining stake. If the deal had gone according to plan, it would have put HNA about halfway past its first-half disposal target.The flurry of sales have reversed the situation up until early 2017, when HNA was at the forefront of a multiyear buying binge by Chinese conglomerates -- think Anbang Insurance Group Co., Dalian Wanda Group Co. and CEFC China Energy Co. -- who were gobbling up everything from New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel to large stakes in Deutsche Bank AG. The seemingly insatiable appetite for trophy … [Read more...] about Collapse of HNA’s Swiss IPO Sets Back $16 Billion Garage Sale
