Project Description

In addition to being a premier facility for jazz performance, the Center supports extensive educational programs to the community and has supported continued economic development in the surrounding low-income community.  ECB secured $41 million in NMTC allocation from four CDEs on behalf of the San Francisco Jazz Organization in order to complete the funding for the SFJAZZ Center at the corner of Franklin and Fell Street in San Francisco. ECB also assisted in securing a $13 million bridge loan from First Republic Bank secured by existing capital campaign pledges.  Funding occurred in 2011 and the project opened in January 2013.
