Re: Crow’s Nest, Victoria Cross
The rumour going around was that Paul Montgomery was looking to buy it – it would certainly make sense given that a sizeable proportion of the student development in Victoria Cross (“Student Central”) is his. Also, it would seem like a throw-back to his Western Star days. Furthermore, it would give Paul Montgomery a direct input into the student pub market which his Reardens Complex does not facilitate (other that the Rafertz nightclub element) and which he hasn’t really had since he made his ‘fortune phase 1’ at “the Star”. It makes sense – offer a rival to the Western Star right in the centre of all the new student activity, then ship them all down to Rafterz after-hours.
