TF Cornerstone Opens Artists’ Space at Chelsea Centro Property

TF Cornerstone (TFC), a leading New York City real estate development firm, announced the opening of New York City-based nonprofit Chashama’s “Project Space” for artists on the ground floor of Chelsea Centro, a mixed-use building located at 274 Seventh Ave. in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood  

In partnership with TFC, Chashama’s new 4,000-square-foot location opens as an artist “Project Space,” consisting of a studio room as well as gallery exhibition space. Window displays will allow pedestrians to view artists’ work on display at all times and witness the artists’ creative process while they work in their studios, adding a performative aspect.  

Chashama and TFC have committed to a six-month term, with the possibility of a month-to-month extension thereafter. While activated, the space will also remain on the rental market for long-term lease opportunities.  

There were no agents of record on the deal. TFC worked directly with Chashama to secure the license agreement.
