District Cancel’s ICE-DC’s Museum Bid for Historic Franklin School

From today’s Washington Business Journal:

The District has ended a nonprofit’s ambitious bid to transform the Franklin School into a center of the arts, issuing a new solicitation for a partner to rehabilitate the facility at 925 13th St. NW “for a suitable use that is compatible with the building’s historic character.”

Mayor Muriel Bowser’s economic development team… formally canceled the city’s arrangement with the Institute of Contemporary Expression-DC. The award was vacated Monday morning, and by the late afternoon, a new request for qualifications appeared on the website of the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.”
