“We have outgrown our current space,” Jeremy F. Fingerman, CEO of the Foundation for Jewish Camp, commented on the reason for the move. “The priority was getting everyone onto one floor.”
The foundation has been based at 15 West 36th Street in a two-floor space for the last several years, but will now occupy the entire 4th floor–9,600 square-feet–at 253 West 35th Street. The lease was signed for ten years with an asking rent of $28 per square foot.
“[253 West 35th Street] is a well maintained building with a clear floor that we could out for our needs,” Mr. Fingerman further stated. “It is also a great location with proximity to mass transit.”
“The landlord is doing some work,” Alan Bonett, broker from Adams & Co. and representative for Shulsky Properties, noted, adding that “[the tenants will] move in around June/July.”
Mr. Bonett brokered the deal with colleague Nick Zagar. The Foundation for Jewish Camp was represented by Eli Smith of Norman Bobrow & Co.
Shulsky Properties also owns 330 Fifth Avenue, 65 Bleecker Street and a few of buildings on Broadway in Soho. This building, 253 West 35th Street, has reached full occupancy with a mixed tenant base that includes A Better Chance and USA Studios, a national organization and a post-production company, respectively.
