Scott Sergio focuses his practice on community development and revitalization, particularly on structuring projects that use tax incentives as a means of financing low-income community projects across the country.
I have a wide range of experience in the area of community development finance.
I represent investors, developers, community development entities, and leverage lenders in the structuring, closing, and unwinding of community development projects utilizing both federal and state NMTCs across the country. Representative transactions include grocery stores, theaters, museums, hotels, medical complexes, and commercial/retail office complexes.
I represent investors, developers, and bridge lenders in the structuring and closing of historic rehabilitation projects across the country. Representative transactions include hospitals, charter and public schools, and the conversion of former industrial facilities into large-scale, mixed-use residential and commercial complexes.
I see more focus on using commercial and residential development as a tool to measure community impact and using the capital markets to achieve a broader scope of community impact than ever before.
In both the HTC and the NMTC areas, more and more projects are leveraging as many sources of financing as possible in order to maximize the benefit that tax credits can provide. This includes state and local funds (both debt and grant dollars), third-party commercial financing, and “stacking” multiple credit programs through the NMTC funnel. We’re helping our clients identify those non-traditional sources and navigate the various statutory, business, and legal requirements that must be balanced in order for all the sources to work together for the underlying project.
