Legal Aid Society Consolidating Offices to 199K SF at 40 Worth Street
The nonprofit signed a 30-year lease for space that will span the entire second, fifth and 12th floors, as well as parts of the ground, mezzanine and third floors of the 20-story building, Crain’s New York Business first reported.
A spokesperson for GFP declined to provide the asking rent.
The Legal Aid Society currently has a 75,000-square-foot presence at 40 Worth and plans to consolidate its outposts at 199 Water Street and 80 Pine Street in the building between West Broadway and Church Street, GFP said. It plans to move into its new digs in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The nonprofit will take over space previously occupied by Charity: Water and Public Health Solutions, which both relocated within the building. Other tenants include the Acumen Fund, the Gap’s East Coast headquarters and the Innocence Project.
GFP’s Brian Steinwurtzel and Roy Lapidus handled the deal in-house for the landlord. Craig Reicher, Christopher Mansfield, Greg Maurer-Hollaender and Peter Gamber of CBRE represented the tenant. A spokesperson for CBRE declined to comment.
“We are thrilled that The Legal Aid Society is consolidating its Lower Manhattan offices with us, which will create a single location and thereby make it easier for its staff and clients to execute their mission,” Steinwurtzel said in a statement.
