‘AHRC New York City’ Nonprofit Moves to the Lower East Side
Two years after the Comprehensive Kids Development School vacated the commercial base of Blue condo, its former upstairs digs is now home to a social services agency.
AHRC New York City, an organization that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, inked a 15-year lease at 130 Delancey Street. The deal came about due to a rent hike at its former SoHo headquarters (315 Hudson Street).
The nonprofit took 15,820 square-feet of space on the second and third floors, and is already up and running. According to the Commercial Observer, asking rents were in the $40s per square-foot.
The three-story base of Blue has seen much retail turnover in the last several years. Children’s Place moved here over seven years ago; Payless ShoeSource folded in April 2017 and was replaced by a Sprint mobile store.
Former owners Angelo Cosentini, same guy who developed Blue, sold the real estate in December 2012 to Carter Management Corp. for $21 million.
