The Children’s Aid Society has expanded its footprint in Harlem, signing a nine-year, 3,500-square-foot lease at 219 West 135th Street. The lease execution took place on November 30 and the asking price for the property was $65 per square foot.
“We are leasing it to offer some of preventive services which are part of our foster care program,” said Anthony Ramos, director of marketing and communications for the organization. Much larger than its previous location at 69 West 118th Street, the new spot in the five story prewar building owned by New Parque, Inc. will accommodate more staff. “We’re relocating because we recently expanded our program,” said Alirio Guerrero, director of preventive services for the Children’s Aid Society.
