Brightpoint Health, a 25-year-old nonprofit that provides primary care and mental health services, expanded its office space at 2510 Westchester Avenue in the Bronx, Commercial Observer can first report.
The New York-based nonprofit has inked a 10-year lease for a total of 7,000 square feet in the office building between Commerce Avenue and Seabury Avenue in the Westchester Square neighborhood.
“Our goal is to provide our patients with holistic care by offering services under one roof,” said Matthew Teter, a spokesman for Brightpoint.
The nonprofit already occupies a 3,500-square-foot space on the second floor of the four-story building. With the new deal, Brightpoint will add a primary care center with six exam rooms to be open in the first quarter of 2016.
“We continue to focus on serving the real estate needs of healthcare organizations, and we’re delighted to work with Brightpoint as they continue to grow here in The Bronx,” said Josh Gopan, an in-house representative for the landlord, Simone Healthcare Development.
Asking rent was $35 per square feet, according to a Simone spokesman.
Simone acquired the property for $5.5 million in December 2008, city records show. The structure was built in 1972 and was repositioned as a medical office building in 2009, according to Reonomy, a commercial real estate database.
Brightpoint serves 40,000 people with more than 130,000 health care visits per year, according to its website. The nonprofit is currently headquartered in Manhattan, and has more than 700 employees and branches throughout the five boroughs. Brightpoint is planning to open a health center at 2351 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park South and 459 East 149th Street in the Bronx.
