Australian entrepreneur Christopher Skase's Qintex Group, which just four months ago agreed to acquire the United Artists movie studio, has purchased two major coastal properties in Orange County for a price believed to be about $245 million. Qintex, whose Mirage resorts division owns two vacation complexes in Australia and one in Hawaii, plans to build a "five-star integrated Mirage resort" on the two sites, including a hotel, spa, retail center and residential villas.

The City Council tonight will consider an appeal from two Australian investors who want to establish a youth hostel in Newport Beach. This month the Planning Commission rejected the plan pitched by Andrew Grace and Philip Boston to open a 50-bed International Backpacker's Inn on 32nd Street. The council cited a lack of parking in rejecting the proposal. Since that vote, Grace and Boston have made arrangements to pave part of an adjacent lot to create nine parking spaces.
