CHICAGO—Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. has signed an agreement to acquire the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North from an affiliate of Walton Street Capital, L.L.C. for $140 million, which includes 13.8-acres of developable land zoned for an additional 88 hotel keys and potential incremental residential usage. Management has valued the land parcels at $6 million.
