Bayview PACE Closes $2 Million in C-PACE Financing for Gut Rehab Conversion of an Industrial Building to Mixed-Use

The 64,000 square-foot adaptive re-use
project will provide flex space for 
small-business, retail and food

Bayview PACE today announced providing $2 million in C-PACE financing for key upgrades involved in conversion of a 64,000 square-foot warehouse-industrial facility into a mixed-use concept for arts, retail and food operators serving the growing Oak Cliff submarket. The Clarendon, at 900 E. Clarendon, is strategically situated near downtown Dallas with close adjacency to Bishop Arts, The Cedars, the renowned Dallas Zoo and the burgeoning Southern Gateway project. It also shares vicinity with the recently revitalized Oak Cliff Assembly, a focal point for collaborative endeavors within the creative community.

Bayview PACE’s C-PACE funding will support improvements for energy and environmental aspects of the project. The Clarendon is a project of locally-based Proxy Properties which owns 60 developments in the Dallas area. The general contractor is Elyse Design & Build which has worked with Proxy Properties on all its developments to date.

“It is great to see C-PACE financing on a project that has such significance to a historically underserved community. This project is truly in the vanguard of redeveloping the southern Dallas community into a vibrant center for arts and culture, and we are thrilled that C-PACE has a place in the capital stack to help make it happen.” Says Julianna Brooks, CEO of Civitas PACE Finance Solutions, a Dallas-based C-PACE consultant. 

According to Coral Gables, FL-based Bayview PACE, its Commercial Property-Assessed Clean Energy financing (C-PACE) offers favorable and cost-effective terms for qualified improvements in energy, lighting, water systems, building envelope and other resiliency components, and it can be applied to new construction as well as renovations.
