Noerr has once again advised the European Investment Bank (EIB) on a corporate financing matter. The housing association VIVAWEST from North Rhine-Westphalia is being granted a credit line of €100 million by the EIB. The funds are secured via the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).

VIVAWEST will use the credit line to build around 900 homes in various cities and municipalities in North Rhine-Westphalia, constructing low-energy homes that meet the KfW 55 standard. The credit line can be drawn down in several tranches and has a maximum term of 13 years.
