New Street Realty Advisors secures A 10,000 Square foot school FOR STANDING TALL in harlem
New York, NY – February 1, 2013 - New Street Realty Advisors, LLCis pleased to announce the successful lease transaction between Standing Tall, Inc., a school for non-verbal children with physical impairments, and Mitchell Enterprises, the owners of 101 West 116th Street Realty, Corp.
Joshua Kaufman, Matthew Gorman, and Joshua Gettler, of New Street Realty Advisors acted on behalf of the tenant in securing the long-term leasehold for the location. Negotiations were held directly with ownership, Mitchell Enterprises.
The site, located at the northwest corner of West 116th Street and Lenox Avenue in Central Harlem, is comprised of a 10,000 square foot on the second floor with a dedicated entrance on the ground floor, fronting West 116th Street. Standing Tall will take occupancy of the space immediately and anticipates an opening this spring.
Since its inception in 1997, Standing Tall is a special education school that provides the unique environment, experts, technology, and experiences needed to provide non-verbal children with physical impairments a path of true communication and learning. Standing Tall serves all non-verbal children, ages 5 through 21 with a brain injury, neuro-motor disorder and neurological disease.
Standing Tall has been on the hunt for a new space for the past two years, having outgrown its location at 200 Riverside Blvd. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The board was on the verge of closing the school until New Street Realty Advisors stepped in, helping the school create a leasing strategy and securing the new location in Central Harlem. “There is so much involved when it comes to school requirements in New York City- from complying with ADA, dealing with egress requirements and the stringent regulations proposed by The Department of Education, it is very challenging to secure the right fit, especially in today’s tight real estate market” said Joshua Kaufman of New Street Realty Advisors.
New Street Realty Advisors have successfully completed numerous projects with similar use groups throughout New York City and specifically in Harlem including Harlem Children’s Zone, Kumon Math and Learning Center, The Archdioceses of New York, The Catholic Health Care System, Arts Horizons, The Institure for Family Health, The City Seminary of New York and St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, to name a few.
