Vista Capital Company, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment banking firm, closed $10 million in financing for the Candlewood Suites located in downtown Indianapolis’ medical district. 

"Vista has now financed more than $250 million of hotels in Indiana over the last seven years," Zak Selbert, founding principal at Vista Capital, said in a statement.

Vista was able to negotiate nonrecourse, fixed-rate financing for the property. The 10-year capital will be used, in part, to fund a product improvement plan that will renovate the property.
