Capital Fringe moved into our permanent home, the Logan Fringe Arts Space at 1358 Florida Avenue in the northeast quadrant of Washington, DC in October of 2015. The once two-floor, three parcel auto detailing shop then turned art gallery, boasts 9,314 square feet of indoor space with an additional 2,400 square feet of outdoor space for a total floor plan of 11,714 Square. The building is now zoned C-2A and has a FAR (floor to area ratio) of 19,000 square feet for future expansion.

In June 2014, Fringe agreed to purchase its new building for $4,500,000, putting down a $350,000 non-refundable deposit to secure the space until closing in October. Fringe closed on the building on October 6, 2014, paying $1,950,000 with take back seller financing for $2,550,000 in outstanding debt with a 4% interest only rate in 2015 and 6% in 2015. Additionally, the deal required another $500,000 payment in February 2015 resulting in $2,050,000 debt financing over the next two years. With Fringe on solid financial footing, and a new asset on its balance sheet, we arranged bank financing with a loan from our bank of 10-years, PNC Bank, in the amount of $2,206,518. Fringe received one loan for $1,200,000 with a fixed rate of 3.9% (interest and principle) and a maturity of seven years and a second loan for $1,006,518 with a floating rate equal to 3.25% (interest only) minus the prime rate (currently .10) and a maturity of five years. To date, Capital Fringe has raised $3,151,949 to fund the project.

Phase 1 - 2014 to 2016

In our first year in the Logan, we operated 193 days of programmatic activity connected to our mission, plus another 51 days of additional programming across the District . We painted murals, created and opened two bars, broke in a new black box theatre, greeted new and old familiar faces and had a great time! The Logan Fringe Arts space currently contains:

  • 104-seat Trinidad Theatre
  • Indoor bar with gallery
  • Outdoor beer garden

Phase 2 - 2017 to 2018

Once Phase Two renovations are completed, the Logan Fringe Arts space will house:

  • 200-seat theatre that operates in accordance with Actors Equity Association rules and guidelines and is completely sound proof
  • 100-capacity multi-purpose venue built to accommodate live music and completely sound proof
  • Scene shop/build space operating and adhering to all OSHA rules and standards
  • Art gallery
  • Indoor bar with a commercial grade kitchen
  • Outdoor beer garden

In order to continue our work in growing and supporting the independent art scene and to improve and enhance our facility Phase 2 will also include the creation of two black box theatres built to cater different styles of live performance. They will be fully equip with the appropriate sound proofing so as to be able operate simultaneously. A commercial kitchen enabling us to serve food and zoning changes will accommodate our growing community.
