Co-Developer/JV Equity for Phoenix CBD Fairmont Hotel and Condo Development

June 30, 2022

The Carlton Group is exclusively engaged with the sponsors of The Blue – a premier development of a 5-star Fairmont Hotel and branded residences in downtown Phoenix (“Project”). The $333 million Project will consist of 230 hotel rooms and 151 condominiums on a site within an Opportunity Zone. The sponsors are an entrepreneurial partnership who already own the site and have assembled a best-in-class team which includes renowned architect Gensler and hotel management company (and owner of the Fairmont brand) Accor Hospitality.

We are requesting $62 million of JV equity to co-invest with the sponsors. A Co-GP structure will also be considered from investors with development expertise.

Attached is the investment memorandum. More info is available upon request.
