Colliers Arranges Larger Office Footprint for NAMI-NYC 

Colliers recently secured an 18-year lease for the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City (NAMI-NYC) at George Comfort & Sons’ 307 W. 38th St. in Manhattan. Managing director David Kaplansky represented the tenant in the transaction. 
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, NAMI-NYC is moving from its 4,800-square-foot location at 505 Eighth Ave. to a 14,000-square-foot space on the eighth floor of 207 W. 38th, tripling its footprint.  The space was formerly leased by GMHC, a nonprofit social services organization working to end the AIDS epidemic. 
“We were pleased that we were able to find NAMI-NYC exactly what they wanted: triple the amount of square-footage in a space that was completely built-out, furnished and wired,” said Kaplansky. “This space will enable the organization to commit even more resources to their incredible work helping families and individuals affected by mental illness build better lives.”
