This brief look at a few of the projects the LLC has helped fund over the years shows the extent of contribution it has made to the historic preservation of old Fort Collins.
The LLC takes great satisfaction in its ability to help small contractors such as Tony Ferguson who used the LLC funds to renovate 232 Pine Street. This historic building, The La Court Hotel, mixes both commercial and residential uses. “It worked out quite well for me,” says Ferguson. “I went to them first because someone else I knew had been helped by them. The interest was lower that I could get at a bank.”
Les Sunde, a self-employed designer, also appreciates the help he has received from the LLC. “I’ve been self-employed for 23 years so I have had a hard time borrowing traditionally, but I have a good track record of owning and renovating buildings. The LLC was willing to accept me as a unique situation, being self-employed, and realized I needed the money to renovate 214 Pine Street. With their help I got the building done sooner and the whole community has benefited.”
