SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#infrastructureD.A.

The financing will fund the installation of public infrastructure improvements serving a mixed-use master planned golf resort community known as Cutalong at Lake Anna, encompassing approximately 1,000 acres in Louisa County, Virginia.


“Our public financing solution is well-known in markets across the Intermountain West, but its impact expands far beyond just one region, and we are proud to partner with clients who have projects across the nation to help them achieve their development goals,” said Brennen Brown, managing director at D.A. Davidson, Special District Group. “As this transaction represents our entrance into a new market and a continued partnership with Stillwater Equity Partners, we look forward to joining the team in another project as they curate Cutalong at Lake Anna.”

Davidson’s Special District Group continues to be our public financing partner of choice based on their adaptability, intentional approach, extensive experience and collaborative nature as a firm.”

Development within the CDA is anticipated to be undertaken in several phases, with the first phases focused on the buildout of the residential lots, golf villas and member cottages duplex homes.
