RFQ Issued for Property Exchange

Pasadena Unified Issues Request for Qualifications for District Headquarters Property Exchange

Pasadena, CA -- The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from parties and/or individuals interested in acquiring the District’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 the District’s 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 District property is located at 351 S. Hudson Avenue in Pasadena. It consists of approximately 4.5 acres of real property and includes office buildings currently used to house the District’s administrative staff and Rose City High School.  The District’s administrative offices and Rose City High School would move to other district-owned sites.

Responses to the RFQ must be submitted by December 21, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. The RFQ and more information can be found at

After reviewing responses to the RFQ, the District 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

333 E. Glenoaks Blvd. Suite 100, Glendale, CA 91207
