C-PACE RECAPITALIZATION

 

Current economic volatility has caused an unprecedented level of commercial real estate market disruption. Ongoing or recently-completed construction or retrofitted properties can access low-cost, long-term financing with no payment for 24 months to replenish reserves, provide working capital, and reduce senior loan payments – bridging properties to stabilization.

C-PACE ELIGIBILITY:

Nuveen Green Capital’s recapitalization funds are limited by C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy) eligibility

  1.  Properties must have ongoing or recently completed C-PACE-eligible construction. Typically, all energy and water-related construction (ex. window, HVAC replacement, etc.) and associated soft costs or green new construction qualify.
  2.  If C-PACE eligible construction is already completed, it must be located within a C-PACE program that allows for retroactive financing.
