Transaction Highlights
Originally, the loan was under application with a lender unable to perform due to COVID-19 related issues. The Siena Lake project needed a capital provider who understood the region and opportunity. Fortunately, PlattPointe Capital has a direct relationship with a well-capitalized private debt fund who was able to close quickly with a creative structure that maximized proceeds.

This new community, Siena Lake, will be located on the former Saddle Ridge PUD comprising 170 acres. A first mortgage deed of trust will be placed on the land collateral which is located along Cooley Mesa Road just southeast of the Eagle County Regional Airport in Gypsum, Colorado. The property is fully entitled for 771 residential units and a 100-key hotel, and is located near a prominent retail node, close to several major employment centers, and with convenient access to I-70.

Gypsum is a fast-growing town in the Eagle Valley area and resort region of Eagle County near prominent ski areas such as Vail and Beaver Creek. Gypsum’s multifamily inventory is limited, with few conventional multifamily communities that include upscale unit finishes or extensive amenities. In response to increased renter demand, four communities have been delivered since 2018.
