The Ingleside at Rock Creek retirement community earned the award, which is named for the former director of the D.C. Revenue Bond Program in the Office of Planning and Economic Development. It recognizes the year’s top deal that made a significant contribution to D.C.’s economic landscape. The deal was selected because of its complicated and creative structure.

The District of Columbia issued $190 million in tax-exempt bonds to finance the expansion and renovation of the Ingleside at Rock Creek retirement community. The bonds included publicly-offered senior and subordinate series with three different banks in draw-down mode and a restructuring of outstanding tax-exempt and taxable bonds, all secured under a new Master Trust Indenture.

Michael Vincent Hodge expanded the city’s program to issue bonds that helped finance construction projects and other development efforts. The award is a way for the D.C. Revenue Bond Program and the City to honor him and further his pursuit of economic development in the District.

“We congratulate Ingleside and all who played a role in this significant deal for the Rock Creek community’s residents and our city,” said John A. Stalfort, managing principal of Miles & Stockbridge’s Washington, D.C. office.
