PCCP provides $41M for a Sacramento development

Curtis Park 1Sacramento, Calif.—PCCP has provided a $41 million full recourse senior loan to Petrovich Development Co. to refinance an existing senior loan and to provide future funding for the completion of infrastructure at Curtis Park Village.

The $250 million mixed-use development will turn 71 acres of vacant land into 181 single-family homes, 334 multifamily units, three commercial sites, open space, parks and public property. The land is an infill location between Land Park and Curtis Park, two 80-year-old legacy neighborhoods that are the most sought after, high-end traditional neighborhoods in the City of Sacramento.

In 2003 the site was acquired by Petrovich Development from the Union Pacific Railroad who had since purchased the Western Pacific rail yard. Petrovich Development Company has expended more than $30 million over the past decade to clean up and entitle the site for the planned development. Recently the firm commenced the Phase I infrastructure construction that is expected to be completed by April of 2014.

”We are pleased to provide financing for this one-of-a-kind infill redevelopment project that will greatly enhance the neighborhood and bring a signature Petrovich Development Company, grocery-anchored retail development to this underserved submarket,” says Phil Russick, principal with PPCP. “The company’s president, Paul Petrovich, has worked exhaustively over many years to make this project a reality.”
