New York City Explorers will occupy 3,410 s/f across the ground floor and lower level at 36 Saint Felix St., a 6,260 s/f mixed-use property between Fulton St. and Dekalb Ave. 

CPEX’s Office Sales & Leasing Team, led by managing director Rich Novak and associate director Gina Damond, represented the landlord and procured the tenant. 

Currently operating out of 1,300 s/f downtown, the added space will allow New York City Explorers to serve a greater number of children and families with its preschool, universal pre-kindergarten, child care, and afterschool programming. 

New York City Explorers has also been featured in The New York Times and Crain’s New York Business for its unique co-working model that provides child care services for parents using its shared workspace.

“This was a perfect match between the space and use,” said Novak. “Its location in a diverse community, steps from Fort Greene Park and the Brooklyn Cultural District, makes it an ideal place for New York City Explorers to expand their services and continue growing alongside the Fort Greene community.”
