Contractor and bank foreclose on floundering fitness club

A big redevelopment project at the Aspen Club was meant to service tourists in Colorado, but financial trouble has prompted multiple contractors and the lender to foreclose on the property. FirstBank, which lent the club's owner $45 million, filed the first foreclosure action at the Pitkin County Treasurer's Office. According to the lender, the property owner owes $30 million. The general contractor, PCL Construction Services Inc., took similar action soon thereafter in Pitkin County District Court. The company activated its mechanic's lien on the property with the hope of recouping $19 million.

Trends in the commercial real estate debt financing market

Banks want more equity before financing CRE

Many factors, like equity, interest rates, economic conditions and climate change, influence the financing of commercial real estate in Missouri and around the country. The conservatism of some banks in recent years has led to requirements that investors bring more equity to their deals. One bank executive said that deals with 75 percent of financing coming from a bank were not happening anymore.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
