GuildNet Inc. is opening an office at the Kingswood Center in Brooklyn.
The not-for-profit organization that serves the blind, visually impaired, and multi-disabled will take a 6,440-square-foot space at 1630 East 15th Street. The lease is set to span a portion of the second floor.
“After we conducted a painstaking analysis of the real estate market throughout Brooklyn for office and medical space we ascertained that 1630 East 15th Street offered our client the most ideal situation for its requirements,” said Hector Rodriguez in a prepared statement.
“The property is situated in close proximity to several public transportation options as well as public parking in the premises, which provide easy access to both employees and patients,” Mr. Rodriguez further noted. “The ownership’s commitment to tenant build-out also played a role in the decision.”
Mr. Rodriguez was joined by his colleague Michael Dubin in representing the tenant. The landlord, whose name was not disclosed, was represented by Dennis Aprea of AVR Realty Co.
Asking rents within the building are in the mid-30s per square foot with GuildNet’s leasing at $35 per square foot.
