Alan Bonett and Bradley Cohn of Adams & Co. represented the landlord, Shulsky Properties, in the transaction, and Savills Studley’s Marc Shapses, Roi Shleifer and Seth Wasserman represented the tenant.

The term of the deal was 10 years and the asking rents in the building were $46, per Bonett. The office portion of the building is now fully leased, he said. 

“The new space at 253 West 35th Street enables the NYC Housing Partnership to remain accessible to its client base, a majority of whom commute through Penn Station, while providing a more modern, flexible office space that will increase efficiency and boost productivity for the organization,” Shapses said in a prepared statement.

The nonprofit plans to relocate in early 2019, per Savills Studley.

Other tenants in the building include Curtis Partition, as CO reported, and education nonprofit A Better Chance.
