Clearinghouse CDFI (CCDFI) provided a $12,000,000 loan to 2347 Reading Road, LLC to refinance an existing construction loan to help stabilize a hotel property in Cincinnati.
In 2021, Reading Road Suites opened as the first majority black-owned hotel in Cincinnati and a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) in the State of Ohio. Strategically positioned, this hotel not only serves as a residence for University of Cincinnati students but also aligns with the city’s key attractions, enhancing connectivity and fulfilling urban needs. The hotel offers 113 rooms, comprising 71 Comfort Suites and 42 MainStay Suites. Each hotel is equipped with amenities including an indoor pool, fitness center, business center, and guest laundry room. Financing provided by CCDFI supports the refinancing of an existing construction loan on the hotel property and buys out existing Class A shareholders.
