Petros PACE Finance Provides $8M C-PACE Construction Financing for Hyatt House Hotel in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, MO. — Petros PACE Finance LLC has provided an $8 million Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) loan on behalf of Pedersen Development Co. to finance energy-efficiency measures in the construction of a 13-story Hyatt House hotel in downtown Kansas City. Pedersen will use the funds to incorporate sustainable design features, including energy-efficient roofing, windows, HVAC equipment, hot water heaters and LED lighting. The 153-room hotel will be located at the southwest corner of Ninth and Broadway streets. C-PACE is a relatively new financing tool for energy- and water-efficiency projects. It is a low-cost, long-term financing product secured as a property tax assessment. Over the 20-year life of the loan, energy-conserving features are expected to generate more than $7 million in utility and maintenance savings as well as a carbon dioxide reduction of 1,159 metric tons. Completion of the hotel is slated for January 2021. Brinkmann Constructors is the general contractor.
