SEATTLE (AP) — Companies affiliated with a man who’s interested in bringing an NHL team to Seattle have spent $281 million on buildings in the city’s Stadium District.

KING-TV reports that property records show that Hudson and First King LLC bought one building last summer, and Hudson Merrill LLC bought one in February.

The companies list the same address as Victor Coleman’s Los Angeles-based Hudson Pacific Properties.

The station reports Coleman has already spent more on real estate in the neighborhood than investor Chris Hansen, who would like to build an NBA and NHL arena there.

Coleman and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman were part of a delegation that flew to Seattle May 6 to meet with King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray to discuss the possibility of bringing professional hockey to Seattle.
