NEW YORK, NY (March 18, 2015) — Capital One Bank announced that it has provided a $35 million loan to finance notes receivable for the Grand Colorado on Peak 8, a timeshare resort with 75 two-bedroom equivalent units, ranging from one to four bedrooms, located at the base of Peak 8 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort in Breckenridge, Colorado. The project is being developed by Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV). Jim Casey, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Capital One’s Vacation Ownership Lending Group, originated the transaction.
“Breckenridge Grand Vacations has an outstanding track record,” Casey said. “Their knowledge of the Breckenridge timeshare market is second to none. We are very pleased to be supporting this project.”
The team at BGV developed, owns and operates three resorts in Breckenridge and is breaking new ground with the Grand Colorado on Peak 8. The development will be the first of its size and type in this market to feature air conditioning in all units and is expected to become the highest-quality timeshare product in the immediate area. Amenities at the ski-in/ski-out resort will include indoor and outdoor aquatic areas with two pools, four hot tubs, a full service spa, restaurant, outdoor fireplaces and grills, a family fun center, three private theaters, a rooftop garden and a lobby bar.
