The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, Inc. (JCRC-NY), the proactive central coordinating and resource organization for the Jewish community in the eight-county metropolitan New York area, has signed a 10-year lease for 7,800 square feet on the 14th floor of GFP Real Estate’s 520 Eighth Ave. in the Garment District.
Matthew Mandell of GFP Real Estate represented the 860,000-square-foot office tower’s ownership. JCRC-NY plans to use its new space for its executive and general offices; GFP Real Estate will build out the space according to JCRC-NY’s specifications. The space was previously occupied by LogOn Computers.
“JCRC-NY is one of the most respected and active nonprofits in the region, and we are thrilled to have them join the roster at 520 Eighth Ave.,” said Jeffrey Gural, chairman and principal of GFP Real Estate.
