Just found this article in the ABJ. Once $128MM in construction financing is spent, Stratus and Canyon-Johnson will need to find additional sources of capital. From a buyer’s perspective, I would want to see that financing in place before entering into a contract.
“The joint venture is aggressively pursuing other options for financing the future construction costs of the W Austin Hotel & Residences project after the required capital contributions are made. Such options may include additional equity contributions by Stratus and Canyon-Johnson, financing from other financial institutions, admitting new equity partners, or a combination of these alternatives. If the joint venture does not secure project financing from a third-party lender, or if Stratus or Canyon-Johnson is unable to make required additional future capital contributions to the joint venture, the joint venture may be required to delay further construction of the project until additional financing is available. “
