BGL Real Estate Advisors LLC is pleased to announce the successful completion of development financing for Ceres Enterprises LLC and The Orlean Company. The capital structure will support their third development of Choice Hotel’s new limited service brand in Westfield, Indiana, joining properties in Noblesville, Indiana and Avon, Ohio.
The $20.757 million financing consisted of: (i) senior construction and FF&E loans totaling $15.568 million, (ii) $2.02 million in subordinated debt, and (iii) $3.17 million of sponsor equity. Funding sources including Heartland Bank, Citizens National Bank, The Peoples Bank Company, and Choice Hotels were represented in the transaction.
The Cambria brand was launched by Choice Hotels in January 2005 as a lifestyle hotel targeted at medium frequency and Millennial business travelers, with the first properties opening in 2007. The Westfield Cambria will be situated on three acres in the Grand Park Village Planned Unit Development District in Westfield, Indiana, across from the Grand Park Athletic Center—the largest sports complex of its kind in the United States. The Westfield Cambria will be the first hotel constructed in the Grand Park community, which is poised to become one of the largest tourist attractions in Indianapolis.
