for Viceroy Anguilla Resort and Residences, Anguilla, B.W.I.
|Los Angeles, CA – June 21, 2006 - Sonnenblick-Eichner Company announced
today that it has arranged $236,000,000 in construction financing for the
Viceroy Anguilla Resort and Residences located on the Caribbean island
of Anguilla in the British West Indies. The financing was obtained
from a U.S. money center bank and closed without any syndication contingencies.
The financing follows two other facilities arranged by Sonnenblick-Eichner Company including the initial land loan for the acquisition of the unentitled development site. The project is being developed by Los Angeles based Kor Hotel Group and Lubert-Adler.
Upon completion, the Five-Star $300 million development will offer 172 fully furnished luxury units including oceanfront villas, townhouses, condominiums, and a 90-room hotel. Amenities at the resort will include a full service spa, restaurants and bars, three infinity edge pools and tennis courts.
Elliot Eichner, principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company commented, “Kor has tremendous vision and instinct to develop a world class resort of this magnitude on Anguilla where this scope of development has previously not been executed. Their level of pre-sales validates the success of the development.”
David Sonnenblick, also a principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company added, “Due to the tremendous amount of capital available in the marketplace, coupled with the quality of the project and development team, we were able to obtain non-recourse construction financing proposals from multiple institutional lenders. The borrower decided to pursue a financing that had no syndication contingencies and could close in less than forty five days. ”
