Sample Consultations

The building also included affordable housing and a PACE center. Since then Capital Incubator has completed two consultations with LifeLong as Project and Financial Advisor. 1) Development and new construction of a 20,000 SF replacement health center facility in West Berkeley. Areas of support included project planning, predevelopment and a comparison of New Markets Tax Credits vs. tax-exempt bonds financing. The project closed in 2012 with NMTC loans, CDBG grants and capital campaign proceeds. 2) Development and new construction of a replacement health center facility in Richmond. Consultation services included project management, planning and financing. The 35,000 SF project closed in 2018 with NMTC loans and with grants.
