The Dexter Hotel

"The PACE program is a wonderful amalgam of economic development, cost savings and forward thinking energy efficiency; It was exciting to see a developer so passionate about utilizing its benefits. At the same time, after several years of inactivity since the program had been established, it was overwhelming to dive back in with short notice to start our first project. Even with an accelerated timeline, the team at Lean & Green Michigan helped us understand and feel confident with the many facets of the program as well as the new project. We are excited to see the closing of Antrim County’s first PACE project and look forward to additional opportunities to advance local economic development."

–Jeremy Scott , County Administrator, Antrim County

Keefer House Hotel

"The Keefer House Hotel will be a catalyst for economic development and downtown investment in Hillsdale. For over 20 years the 137-year-old building sat vacant and slowly deteriorated requiring a significant investment to rehabilitate it. PACE funding made this investment possible and played a major role in the financial stack allowing us to develop this property into a premiere boutique hotel that will transform the city by adding dozens of new jobs, additional quality lodging, a new restaurant and bar, and prime retail storefronts. Our projects are meant to positively transform small towns in every way possible including introducing local governments to new economic incentive tools such as PACE. We enjoyed working closely with the team at Lean and Green Michigan so we can utilize this funding while also making our building more energy efficient."

"As a fixed-rate, fully amortizes, non-recourse and non-accelerating financing mechanism, it's no wonder PACE is changing the game for the real estate community. Developing energy efficient buildings is becoming the norm for commercial real estate and PACE helps leverage large sources of private capital to help make that happen. As a real estate asset professional who has used PACE in the past, I would not hesitate to recommend PACE to other commercial real estate professionals who may be considering it."
