There is no doubt that financing has been a major hurdle for many projects. Through our long time association with VP Buildings we can now provide an additional advantage to our customers on entertainment, education and public infrastructure projects. VP has formed an agreement with EPR Financial Services ( a subsidiary of Entertainment Properties Trust with an investment portfolio of approximately $3 Billion) which allows builders to offer a build-to-suit for lease program directly with the developer and funding source. Once the project is completed, EPR will become the long-term owner/ landlord for the project.
This program was just announced yesterday and if it is of interest we can explore it together.
