LARKSPUR, Calif. – February 17, 2022 – GreenRock Capital LLC (GreenRock) successfully led $55 million in Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) funding in recent months. These financings preceded the firm’s $103 million in C-PACE funding for Chinese Hospital in San Francisco last month. The Chinese Hospital deal was the largest single commercial PACE transaction in PACE industry history, and the first to combine both taxable and tax-exempt financing in the same transaction.
Among numerous recent financings, GreenRock arranged capital for the ground-up construction of a large senior living facility in Northern California, ground-up construction of multifamily development in central Ohio, a capital improvement reimbursement for a senior housing project in Woodland Hills, Calif. and capital improvement reimbursements for a prominent hotel property in San Francisco. Most of the financing transactions were for 30-year terms including capitalized interest and interest-only periods. These transactions closed within the past nine months and have set the stage for ongoing deal flow as the year unfolds. Combining these financings, the firm’s closings total north of $150 million. One of the closings involved senior lender ORIX Corporation USA’s Municipal and Infrastructure group in its first C-PACE endeavor in the senior living space.
“We were very pleased to have introduced GreenRock to our client,” says Ben Price, Director, Municipal and Infrastructure, ORIX Corporation USA. “It was a smooth process and a successful closing.”
