Collegio Leoniano Academic Center
Rome, Italy

DBI was brought on as a fee developer to transform an underutilized building in Rome into an active academic campus for four American Universities. Our asset repositioning strategy preserved the historic character of the building and maximized utilization by placing academic users in the building. We negotiated a long-term lease, engineered the deal structure and finance placement, and managed the multi-million capital investment and phased construction. Despite the challenges presented by the international location and a fluctuating currency exchange rate, the project was completed on time and on budget.
