$5.7 million office purchase, overseen by Denham Wolf Real Estate Services, adds a third commercial floor to legal and educational nonprofit’s office space
NEW YORK, March 24, 2022 – Today, the Center for Constitutional Rights and Denham Wolf Real Estate Services (Denham Wolf) announced the purchase of the 9th floor office condominium at 666 Broadway for $5.575 million. The Center for Constitutional Rights has owned and operated out of the 6th and 7th floors of the building since 1968, and this acquisition will grow the organization’s rentable square footage from 18,372 to over 27,000. The additional space will support the Center for Constitutional Rights as it continues to advance its mission to fuse litigation, advocacy, and narrative shifting to stand with social justice movements and oppressed communities.
"The Center for Constitutional Rights is a movement lawyering powerhouse committed to social transformation. Fulfilling our mission requires that we transform our
office spaces - physical and virtual. Thanks to Denham Wolf, we will create a home that communicates our history, encourages innovative thinking, and conjures a sense of community,” said Vince Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights. “When clients, allies, supporters and others enter the Center’s new headquarters, it will be clear that we are a social justice organization with a long history of protecting and defending oppressed people."
Acting as the acquisition broker, Denham Wolf, a trusted real estate advisor serving the nonprofit community across New York City and beyond, supported the Center for Constitutional Rights by providing both transaction planning, acquisition and project management services, which allowed the organization to assess all options and secure the outcome that best accomplished CCR’s goals. By acquiring the 9th floor of 666 Broadway, a space that fits the growing needs of the organization, the nonprofit is well positioned to move the needle of social change for years to come.
“For over 55 years, the Center for Constitutional Rights has done such incredible work advancing justice and liberation for vulnerable communities,” said Christopher Turner, Director of Transaction Services at Denham Wolf. “We are so proud to have helped the Center execute a sound real estate strategy that is laying the groundwork for a transformative future.”
The seller of the space is the Trust for Public Land, who was represented by Mitchell Levine and Bradley Rothschild of Avison and Young.
