San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, November 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Rosewood San Miguel de Allende, a community that encompasses a 67-room resort and the Artesana Rosewood Residences, is the recipient of an $88 million loan from Mexico’s largest bank, Banamex. It is the single largest loan in real estate in San Miguel de Allende, and in the history of the state of Guanajuato.
“The sheer size of the Banamex loan is significant,” said Richard York, director of sales for Artesana Rosewood Residences. “But what’s more significant is that it was granted to us at a time when more than 180 real estate development projects in Mexico were being shut down. It is a great vote of confidence from Banamex that speaks volumes about the caliber of our project.”
Not only has the Rosewood development invested in San Miguel de Allende real estate, but it also has invested in the local community. It is the largest single venture in San Miguel since the post-World War II era and employees 300 to 900 construction workers daily. The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende resort also partnered with local Via Orgánica, an organization supported by the municipality, to grow organic vegetables and herbs onsite that will supply the hotel restaurants. Guests will have the opportunity to visit these plantations and learn about the organic process. Via Orgánica is an organization that works to minimize environmental pollution and elevate education on nutrition.
Artesana Rosewood Residences is nearing completion on the first phase of construction with 29 custom homes and the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende resort opening in early 2011.
