Nonprofit Leases Brooklyn Office To Serve Holocaust Survivors

NEW YORK CITY—Selfhelp Community Services secured a 14,889-square foot lease at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road in Brooklyn. Transwestern’s Stephen Powers, Lindsay Ornstein, Thomas Hines and Jake Cinti provided Occupier Solutions services for Selfhelp. The nonprofit will consolidate two facilities into the new Sheepshead Bay location, which will house two programs that offer services to Holocaust survivors and the elderly.

“By consolidating our Brooklyn Holocaust survivor and home health aide training programs at our new office at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, we will be able to provide better and more robust access to these critical services,” said Russell Lusak, Chief Operating Officer at Selfhelp in prepared remarks.

Located in Coney Island, 626 Sheepshead Bay Road was built in 2018 and features seven floors of office and retail space. The building, which is home to many nonprofit organizations, is near several public transit options, including the D, F, B and Q trains. Building ownership, Cammeby’s International, was represented by David Ofman of The Lawrence Group.

Powers, who leads Transwestern’s national Nonprofit Advisory Services group noted that the Transwestern team conducted a lengthy site search, including significant location analytics, to help Selfhelp find a location that met its needs.
