U.S. Bank Provides $14 Million In Financing For Development Of La Kretz Innovation Campus

According to reports conducted for the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, the campus’ anchor tenant, this project is expected to incubate up to 40 clean tech companies and create 600 direct jobs with average annual wages of $45,000 in its first five years. The facility will also house LADWP’s Energy Efficiency Technology and Customer Engagement Centers, as well as a prototype manufacturing workshop, classrooms, a conference room, and a wet lab, all housed under one roof and priced affordably for early stage businesses.

U.S. Bank’s investment was made possible using NMTCs allocated by Clearinghouse CDFI, Consortium America, Los Angeles Development Fund, and Urban Research Park, along with USBCDE, LLC, U.S. Bank’s own Community Development Entity, and leveraging available funds from LADWP and a donation from Mort La Kretz, for whom the campus is named.

NMTCs transform private sector capital into below-market, flexible financing. The availability of up-front NMTC capital means the incubator can more fully focus on its mission of encouraging entrepreneurism through clean technologies.

As initial cleantech startups grow, graduate and move into larger space on the campus, they will attract other cleantech startups to take their place. New startups will benefit from affordable rental rates as well as coordinated efforts with an onsite workforce training provider, monthly symposiums with industry leaders, and informal interaction with other start-up and seasoned businesses.

Further, the campus will create one of the few green spaces in the city. The campus’ outdoor public space will include a new park with benches and free wi-fi and surface parking lots that will be shaded by a photovoltaic solar canopy system.
