Economic Development

We have played an active and innovative role in financing a variety of projects designed to foster economic development or more efficient administration and operation of public purpose facilities or systems. The financing techniques used by our professionals have included both taxable and tax-exempt project revenue bonds, special tax bonds, tax increment bonds, privatization and various forms of lease-based financing. Our ability to evaluate and creatively deploy various financing structures is invaluable to our clients. Wye River is an active member of the Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA).

Public and Private Partnerships (P3)

Wye River’s professionals have over 150 years of combined public finance experience and the in-house knowledge and capability to perform all necessary tasks related to the preparation and implementation of P3 financing. Our advisory team is well-equipped in researching, analyzing, developing, negotiating and implementing optimal financing plans for its P3 clients and has the ability to bring financing transactions to a successful close in a timely and cost-effective manner.

TIF and Special Tax Districts

Special Tax Bonds provide ideal mechanisms for funding select infrastructure and public facility costs for real estate development projects, including infrastructure and community amenities. Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Bonds are often used to rehabilitate or redevelop a distressed area. These financing structures can be customized, combined and/or deployed individually to help real estate developers best address their project development and financing goals.

There have been a number of TIF and Special Tax Bond financings throughout the country and these techniques have become a popular way for developers to secure limited recourse financing for the infrastructure requirements of their projects. Wye River has extensive experience structuring such transactions and can assist in all facets of the planning, approval process, financing and administrative (post-financing) process associated with TIF and Special Tax Bond financing.

Other Creative Financings

Real estate development brings economic growth and challenges. Planned communities, subdivisions, and town centers bring intense infrastructure and public facility needs. Creative financing alternatives are available for infrastructure, community amenities and public facilities which are attractive to developers because they are less expensive than conventional alternative, do not require developer guarantees or “on-balance sheet” debt and enable the cost to be allocated to, and borne by, the ultimate property owners over the useful lives of the improvements. We are committed to providing an exhaustive analysis of creative, cost-saving financing techniques for each of our clients.
