What do you want to see at the Franklin School?


At its December meeting on Wednesday, December 4, the Commission will consider the four proposed projects for the Historic Franklin School, and advise the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development on which project is in the best interests of our community.  The four proposals are:

  • CoStar Group & Abdo Development—Office space to be used as a CoStar technology hub and learning center
  • Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group & Bundy Development Corporation—Office space for the National Association of Multicultural Digital Entrepreneurs, including work space and affordable housing for technology entrepreneurs
  • Douglas Development—A boutique hotel and restaurants
  • Institute for Contemporary Expression & EastBanc—An art gallery, restaurant by ThinkFoodGroup, bookstore, and café.

The four developers presented their projects at a community forum on October 30, 2013, and responded to questions from the public.  The presentations are located on the Deputy Mayor’s website, as well as a summary of the community’s questions and developers’ responses.

ANC 2F invites your feedback on these proposals.  Please send comments to your local ANC commissioner (see list below), and we hope you can join us at our monthly meeting on Wednesday, December 4, at 7:00 p.m. at the Washington Plaza Hotel.
