    54. 54. Q&A<br />Thank you!<br />
    55. 55. Best Western Site<br />Too large, too expensive, too risky to finance<br />Lot size (~ 1 acre) and structure (63 motel rooms) larger than needed<br />Population study indicates ~ 30 units is right size<br />Too large a project may alienate community, instead of engaging it<br />$9.8 million asking price reflects value as a going concern<br />Perhaps negotiable to 8-9 million, plus 1-2 million in renovation -> total 9 – 11 million project cost<br />Using 1.66 units per PSH unit -> 37-38 units, 25% more than selected site<br />High acquisition cost is penalized in competitive loan applications; project unlikely to reach fruition<br />
