St. Ann’s Warehouse
DBI was engaged by St. Ann’s Warehouse, a non-profit performing arts institution, to conduct a real estate search for the group’s new home. In 2011-12 DBI worked alongside the client to develop property search criteria, identify potential properties, and perform site evaluations. After selecting an interim theater site, DBI negotiated the project lease, oversaw the planning process, hired and coordinated the design and construction teams, and managed the theater construction. Since 2013, DBI planned and managed the conversion of a historic tobacco warehouse into the group’s new home. Construction on the new 25,000 sf theater began in the fall of 2013 and was completed in the fall of 2015.
