With Tim Dixon’s background in construction, urban renewal and complete site development, Fe Equus offers turn-key developments that start with complete concept development and result in stunning projects that are delivered on time and within budget. The firm is involved in all aspects of the physical development and is committed to integrating great design with a real-time construction critical path.
To move beyond just “heads in beds” and create a genuine destination, Fe Equus recognizes and delivers a comprehensive integration between the structure itself, the business within the structure, and ultimately, the overall guest experience. As the owner and developer of one of the most celebrated boutique hotels to open since the 2008 recession, Tim Dixon believes that The Iron Horse Hotel’s success can be used as a platform for hospitality development and applied to secondary markets throughout the U.S. and beyond.
F&B Concept & Development
Fe Equus is passionate about delivering memorable and extraordinary experiences through food and beverage. By creating and showcasing F&B that is appealing to local clientele, our developments foster opportunities for more interactions and ensure a long-term, sustainable marketplace advantage. Going beyond mere concept to building loyal F&B ambassadors is at the cornerstone of Dixon’s philosophy. This is evidenced by his successes with such properties as The Iron Horse Hotel and Stack’d Burger Bar, where he turned a vacancy into an opportunity.
At Fe Equus, we believe every project should benefit from market advantages. Our firm has created one of the largest single-parcel TIFs in Wisconsin, is one of the state’s largest recipients of New Market Tax Credits, has successfully completed several Historic Tax Credit and Low Income Housing Tax Credit projects, and has negotiated the purchase of New Market, State and Federal Historic Tax Credits. We understand the multitude of financing options available and are uniquely qualified to shepherd this process.
Fe Equus is dedicated to total project development. This often means merging architectural design with a company’s vision or brand standards to create an environment that is reflective of the business’ identity inside and out, down to the smallest detail. It is through this meticulous integration that each of our developments is transformed into a unique and notable destination.
Owner of Fe Equus, Tim Dixon, is interviewed regularly by national media and is available for speaking engagements on a variety of topics including Hotel Development, F&B Concepts, Creative Financing & Enhancements, Urban/Rural Renewal, and Dyslexia. He has been invited to speak at the American Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS), Hospitality Design’s HD Boutique, Midwest Lodging Investment Summit (MLIS), Native American Finance Conference, and NEWH- The Hospitality Industry Network among many other forums.
