"When Andrew Kimball needed $60 million to help redevelop the Brooklyn
Navy Yard in 2009, the president of the 300-acre industrial park boarded
a plane for China. Halfway around the world, he made a
compelling pitch to potential investors packing conference rooms and
auditoriums in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen: Pump money into
job-generating construction projects in the U.S. and—thanks to an
obscure federal immigration program—get a guaranteed return of coveted
green cards. “It was like a gift from the gods,” Mr. Kimball said
of the program, recalling how American lenders had been reluctant to
offer the Navy Yard financing after the recession. “We'd been exploring
every option under the sun.” Mr. Kimball returned from China with
millions of dollars in commitments. Since then, a growing number of
developers across the city have taken advantage of the federal program,
known as EB-5. Once virtually unknown in New York, the 20-year-old
program has become a lifeline for economic development in recent years,
raising hundreds of millions of dollars for film studios, hotels and
even Brooklyn's Atlantic Yards project." - Crain's, Jan. 8, 2012.
