The family services organization, The Family Center, will be opening an office in Brooklyn at 1295 Fulton Street.
The 10,500 square foot office will be an extension of The Family Center’s operations in Brooklyn and will include a mental health facility set to open this upcoming September.
“This space presents a tremendous opportunity for The Family Center to expand its service base in Central Brooklyn. When the build-to-suit project is complete, The Family Center will expand its reach in completing its critical family support mission in the community,” said David Muessel, managing director of office leasing and investment sales team at CPEX and broker for the landlord, in a release about the lease deal. “We are proud to bring this new opportunity to the area, particularly in light of the fact that this space has been unused for many, many years. It is very rewarding to see it being used to further the quality of life in the community.”
Mr. Muessel was joined by Nicholas Hector and Timothy King in representing the landlord, Ash Unlimited, Inc. The tenant was represented by Carri Lyon of Cushman & Wakefield.
The Family Center offers legal and social services, including healthcare and wellness programs, to New Yorkers struggling with a family crisis or loss. Th firm was initially founded in 1994 by four women working in the NYC Department of Social Services who saw a gap in the services for families affected by HIV/AIDS. The first office on the 3rd floor of 66 Reade, but moved to 315 West 36th Street about ten years later. The Family Center continues to provide services to over 250 children and their families.
The building, 1295 Fulton Street, is in on the corner of Fulton Street and Nostrand Avenue in Bed-Stuy with asking rents of $22 per square foot.
