Family Services Nonprofit Renews in Manhattanville

The Janus Property Company has closed a lease with Graham Windham at the Sweets Building, 423 W. 127th St. in West Harlem’s Manhattanville Factory District. The lease is a full-floor renewal for Graham Windham’s current 5,200-square-foot space.

Founded in 1806, Graham Windham provides youth and family programs at 11 community-based sites in Harlem, Brooklyn and the Bronx. 

“Providing strategic spaces for nonprofits is a cornerstone of the Manhattanville Factory District,” said Janus principal Jerry Salama. “Graham Windham’s commitment to serving the community, especially recently during the pandemic, has been inspiring. We look forward to extending our relationship and continuing to help their organization succeed in its mission of serving New York’s families.”

Originally a candy factory where Dentyne chewing gum was developed, the Sweets Building is now a modern, five-story commercial office building that retains the distinctive industrial architecture of the West Harlem neighborhood.
