PUSD issues RFQ for district headquarters property exchange
The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from parties and/or individuals interested in acquiring PUSD’s headquarters through a property exchange. With the release of the RFQ, PUSD begins a two-phase process that will result in the selection of an interested party with whom it can exchange its current headquarters for revenue-producing properties. The two-stage approach helps to both streamline the process and to gather information about interested parties.
“The introduction of the RFQ is a milestone for Pasadena Unified and represents the next step in making the most of our assets to benefit students and learning,” said Superintendent Brian McDonald.
The property is located at 351 S. Hudson Ave. in Pasadena. It consists of approximately 4.5 acres of real property and includes office buildings currently used to house administrative staff and Rose City High School. The administrative offices and Rose City High School would move to other district-owned sites.
Responses to the RFQ must be submitted by Dec. 21, 2018, at 2 p.m. The RFQ and more information can be found at pusdrfp.com.
After reviewing responses to the RFQ, PUSD will issue a Request for Proposals that establishes specific requirements for the district property to qualified parties. The anticipated exchange of property must comply with state law (Education Code 17536, et seq.) and be approved by the Board of Education.
For additional information, interested parties should contact the District’s representative, Sam Manoukian, CCIM director of commercial division RE/MAX OPTIMA: by mail at 333 E. Glenoaks Blvd. Suite 100, Glendale, CA 91207, by phone at (818) 547-6324, by fax at (818) 450-0712, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested parties are advised that contacting district officials, employees, and/or representatives may result in disqualification
