The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership’s managing director of real estate has left for Success Academy, the charter school founded by Eva Moskowitz.

Alan Washington stepped down from his post at the partnership, where he oversaw real estate consulting services, research and planning. He will serve as director of real estate at Success, a charter school headed by Moskowitz, who President Donald Trump, at one time, considered appointing education secretary. Washington declined to comment.

“Alan made a significant contribution to the DBP team and will be missed,” DBP President Regina Myer said in a statement. “We wish him well at what promises to be an exciting new challenge.”

The school has been the source of some controversy over the past few years. Earlier this week, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito called on the New Yorkers to protest Success after Moskowitz invited House Speaker Paul Ryan to the school.

Washington’s departure from the DBP comes roughly a year after Tucker Reed, former president of the firm, left to form a real estate consulting business, Totem. The firm recently teamed up with the Rabsky Group on what was initially going to be an office development at 625 Fulton Street. The developer, however, just scooped up a neighboring site for $68 million and is now mulling a larger residential or office project.

Before joining the partnership, Washington founded a real estate advisory firm for colleges and universities, Campus Housing Partners. He also developed residential properties in Upstate New York for a number of years, according to his LinkedIn page. The DBP oversees three business improvement districts (BIDs), nonprofits that are fueled by assessments, or special taxes paid by local property and business owners. The city’s 74 BIDs invested $134 million in their respective neighborhoods in 2016, according to the city Small BusinessServices’ annual report.
