Portman Holdings

“The project has always had an ambitious construction and capital plan”, said Portman Holdings President, John Portman, IV. “We were fortunate enough to work with talented and capable people with the City and County to learn what sustainable financing resources were available to the project. Once we were introduced to C-PACE, we immediately saw the opportunity to cost-effectively fund the sustainable elements of the project. CleanFund provided the capital in an upfront manner and was a delight to work with. We are very pleased with how they approached the deal and the partnership, especially given the overall complexity of the project.”
