New York, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
CanAm Enterprises, LLC (“CanAm”) is pleased to announce that Philadelphia Authority for Industrial Development (“PAID”) repaid its $13.5 Million EB-5 Partnership Loan to CanAm’s Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (“PIDC”) Regional Center. This marks the 16th CanAm project that has been repaid in full and on time, and all investors and their family members received permanent Green Cards as a result of the PAID Project’s job creation.
Established in 1967, PAID is a governmental authority that was created to advance the economic development policies of the City of Philadelphia. PAID developed the former Philadelphia Naval Base into a 6.5 million sq. ft., mixed-use business campus called the Navy Yard. Today, the Navy Yard is home to more than 130 companies and accounts for more than 10,000 jobs in the City of Philadelphia.
“PIDC is proud to have partnered with CanAm Enterprises and the PIDC Regional Center for the past ten years. EB-5 funding has been instrumental in the successful redevelopment of the Navy Yard into the dynamic, sustainable business campus it is today,” said John Grady, President of PIDC.
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The Program provides opportunities for qualified foreign nationals to achieve permanent legal residency in the U.S. through an investment in an USCIS-approved project that will generate at least ten, new full-time jobs in the United States.
