Los Angeles Alliance Charter Schools
CBRE was able to assist Los Angeles Alliance Charter Schools with acquiring permanent facilities in the vicinity of Downtown Los Angeles. Despite the area’s stringent zoning requirements and the expensive cost of facilities large enough to house the school’s operations, CBRE was able to find a long-term solution for Alliance by locating a devalued public storage facility that was renovated to fit Alliance’s needs. The facility still successfully houses both schools and Alliance’s corporate headquarters.
After searching for a facility for over a year, Green Dot engaged CBRE in an exclusive representation agreement to acquire a facility in Los Angeles near Jefferson High School. This proved to be a true challenge, as that market provided few viable facilities. Within two weeks, CBRE had used their existing relationships and knowledge of the marketplace to locate a 50,000 SF site that far exceeded Green Dot’s expectations. Not only was Green Dot able to open their high school, but they were also able to utilize the facility to open a middle school. Green Dot currently educates over 875 students at the acquired facility.
College Ready Academy
As is the case with many K-12 schools, College Ready Academy #6 found that they had grown beyond the capacity of their facility. With their then current lease coming up for renewal, the organization needed a solution for growth and expansion. After months of researching options that would accommodate their growth, the organization found no solutions. Partnering with CBRE professionals allowed College Ready Academy #6 to gain the insight and market analysis needed to determine their best option. CBRE professionals were able to identify a purchase opportunity that allowed the school to acquire a new facility and expand the school to accommodate both a high school and middle school college-preparatory curriculum.
