THE BALAM ESCAPE

Overview

The Balam Island Escape, Delaware is seeking $10 million of equity (Pre-development Phase) and $120 million of debt (Phase I) to develop a net-zero, sustainable master-planned community. 

3,500 single and multi-family dwelling units, 24 adobe 3D printed villas, and an environmental technologies research center with a school and hospital, three luxurious hotels (up to 1,500 rooms total), spas and healing centers offering telemedicine, green technology center, marina, airport golf course, village center, and water/art Park


Situated in an idyllic tropical location: oceanfront and forest land in Belize, Central America


Land valued for all phases at $46 million


Equity and land assets with $120 million Green Bonds debt will complete 24 villas or boutique hotel on private island and vertical construction (hotel, homes, infrastructure, marketing, etc.)

THE BALAM ESCAPE

Opportunity

 

Belize is a world-renowned tourism destination ​


While there are many hotels in Belize, Balam Escape faces very little direct competition, as we are building a net-zero community with hotels ​


Most other projects in Belize offer fewer amenities, and lack room service, world-class restaurants, fitness areas, spas, marina, airport, art park, hospital, school and church, etc


Prime Square completed a hospitality study, suggesting that the hotel project would be very profitable with an average daily rate in year three of $639/night.


Several global brand-name flags have indicated interest in the first hotel


Belize pegged its currency to the USD & adopted English as its official language

GROWTH-ORIENTED WITH SEVERAL FURTHER PHASES TO COME

OPPORTUNITY TO BE PART OF PHASE 1
