Cypress Grove


Nuveen Green Capital and First Citizens Community Bank (FCCB) partnered to provide a combined capital stack for the $56.8MM multifamily development. Nuveen Green Capital provided 19% LTC in C-PACE construction financing and FCCB provided 62% LTC senior construction financing. Nuveen Green Capital’s C-PACE loan proceeds will be used to fund qualifying construction costs such as: building envelope, HVAC, electrical upgrades, and elevators. The Cypress Grove development project is projected to save nearly 30% more on energy costs than a comparable development built to code minimums.
