Welcome Homes Finds Home at Rudin’s 41 Madison Ave.

Handler Real Estate Organization arranged a 4,761-square-foot office lease on behalf of digital home building firm Welcome Homes at Rudin Management’s 41 Madison Ave. The tenant will occupy a portion of the 33rd floor of the office property overlooking Madison Square Park.

This new lease represents the first Manhattan office for Miami-based Welcome Homes, an online service enabling home-buyers to custom design and build a new single-family home in the New York metro area, including Westchester and Putnam County, Fairfield County, CT, and Northern Jersey, with more areas around the U.S. expected to be available soon. 

“Welcome Homes was looking for high-end space in a prime location to establish a Manhattan presence,” said Handler EVP Darell Handler, who along with Kyle Galin represented Welcome Homes. “They are delighted with the space and to be working with Rudin Management, one of the city’s best landlords.” 

Rudin Management’s Robert Steinman represented ownership.
