FRANKLIN SCHOOL 51,000 sf
On behalf of the Institute for Contemporary Expression -- DC and EastBanc, Davey Street Partners successfully led the development team to victory winning a competitive solicitation process which the District used to dispose of the historic Franklin School. Davey Street's role continues as development advisor negotiating the public-private transaction document with the District.
The Franklin School was built in 1869 as the flagship school in a group of seven modern urban buildings constructed as the first to house a comprehensive system of free universal public education in the District. The building was the site of Alexander Graham Bell’s photo-phone experiments in 1876, housed the City’s first high school in 1880, and became the administrative headquarters of the District school system from 1928 until 1968. From 1969 until 1990, the building served as an Adult Education Center.
The historic Franklin School will be completely restored to its original structure and will be occupied by The Institute for Contemporary Expression -- Washington, DC.

DC PACE LOAN PROGRAM
Enabled through the Energy Efficiency Financing Act of 2010, the District PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program is a municipal financing structure that allows commercial property owners to create a voluntary, single-property special assessment district to fund energy efficiency retrofits in their building(s).
The projects are underwritten and the loan is originated by the privately-operated PACE Administrator (Urban Energy Advisors). The loan repayment is made by the property owner as a special property tax assessment payment paid semi-annually and attached to the property. The loans are funded by PACE program capital providers and loaned to the property owners through and by the PACE Administrator.
In partnership with the administrator, Davey Street Partners provides financing expertise by leading and supporting the effort to source capital providers, and underwrite, negotiate, structure and originate PACE loans.
