Time Equities, Inc. (TEI) recently completed a $4.1 million sale of a 7,766 s/foffice condo at 70 West 36th St. for the N.Y.C. Department of Hospital Employees Local #420, also referred to as the Municipal Hospital Employees Union. The N.Y.C. Department of Hospital Employees is one extension of DC 37. The Local #420 chapter represents medical employees and technicians who work in the Health & Hospitals Corp., Fire Department, Department of Corrections and the Department of Health. The new office space will be the headquarters for the union.
"The organization was seeking a new headquarters and recognized that now is a great time to purchase an office condo. After a brief renovation period, the company will move into the new space this fall," said Brandon Medeiros of TEI.
Medeiros represented the seller while Jonathan Cohen of JTK Cohen and Company represented the buyer.
"Owning office space provides stability for companies and helps them lock in rates, ensuring they will not be priced out of a building due to rising rents," said Medeiros. "Office condos are in demand this summer and we have many deals pending within our portfolio. We have seen an 18% increase in sales prices this year and expect for the trend to continue as office condominium availabilities tighten."
