Urban Advisors was engaged to structure and underwrite a Program Related Investment (PRI) for a business incubator facility. The deal structure included Historic Tax Credits, PRIs and Grant Proceeds.  The Franz Building will house Good Works Network’s business incubator facilities for small businesses in the Central City area of New Orleans, LA.  The majority of GWN’s small businesses are minority and women owned.  The facility will also house the headquarters of Good Work Network, a small- and micro-business Technical Assistance  provider.  The building renovation includes sustainable “green” technology innovations to help minimize any negative environmental impacts
