David Sonnenblick, principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, said, “Due to the project's unique attributes and location, we were able to identify several domestic and international institutions seeking the opportunity to provide construction financing for the project. We were successful in structuring a non-recourse construction loan with a cap on the completion guaranty, thereby minimizing our client's exposure. Upon completion, this project will be one of the finest year-round resorts in the country.”

Elliot Eichner, principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company added, “This transaction is indicative of our company's dedicated niche in arranging and structuring complex transactions for the hospitality industry.”
