GREENWICH, Conn.--()--CounterpointeSRE, a subsidiary of Counterpointe Sustainable Advisors (together “Counterpointe“) today announced that it has successfully closed $255.9 million in PACE financing for the adaptive reuse of the historic Aronson Building into the Four Seasons Private Residences in San Francisco. The transaction, representing the first financing completed since Counterpointe’s recapitalization with MassMutual in May, is the largest PACE financing ever completed and marks a new phase in the evolution of green financing for institutional quality commercial real estate.
