Twain Financial Partners Provides Financing for Armory Building

November 8, 2021

Twain Financial Partners is pleased to announce the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy financing in connection with the rehabilitation of the historic Armory building in St. Louis, MO.

Upon completion, the property will be an entertainment venue with a variety of eating and drinking options, gaming areas, and private party areas. Featured activity spaces will include a roller rink, bocce ball courts, dart boards, indoor soccer fields, ping pong tables, and an “air bowling” alley. A 5,000 square foot area in the sub-basement will be built out as separate “speakeasy” bar with a 1920’s theme.
