New Homewood Suites Secures Additional Financing from CO C-PACE

Lafayette, CO—Colorado C-PACE announced today that Kinseth Hospitality and the Frew Development Group has secured additional CO C-PACE financing for the development of a 117-unit, 106,642 SF hotel located at 122 Lake Dillon Drive in Dillon, CO.

Stonehill PACE, a C-PACE lender headquartered in Georgia that specializes in hospitality financing, in partnership with Peachtree Hotel Group provided $6 million in C-PACE financing for the project. This is the largest single-property project financed by CO C-PACE to date.

Denver-based Group 14 Engineering was responsible for the energy savings analysis, which projects energy consumption savings 11 percent higher than the IECC 2015 energy code baseline. Susan Reilly, President of Group 14 Engineering said, “The beauty of Colorado’s C-PACE program is that it drives developers and design teams to consider cost-effective, state-of-the-art energy efficiency measures in their initial design so that they can realize substantial cost savings from the get-go.”
