Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) plans to move its headquarters to a new 112,000 s/f office space at 307 West 38th Street in Midtown.
This move will make the agency’s lifesaving services even more accessible to its more than 12,000 annual clients living with or affected by HIV and AIDS.
Ira Schuman and Stephan Steiner at Savills Studley brokered the lease for GMHC, which has been operating at 446 West 33rd Street since 2010.
The organization will move into its new location by July 31, 2018.
“GMHC continues to grow to serve the needs of our clients and all New Yorkers. Ensuring that our space best meets the needs of our community is a top priority,” said GMHC CEO Kelsey Louie.
“We’re excited to move our headquarters to a more central, accessible location that will also better accommodate our operations and the services we offer.”
The new,space will occupy six floors of the building (floors 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8) and will house GMHC’s current programming and be flexible enough to allow for future growth.
As in the current headquarters, the new space will feature the Peter Krueger Dining Room, which will serve clients with hot lunches four days a week and dinner on Friday evenings; the Keith Haring Food Pantry Program.
There will be a dedicated entry for GMHC staff, clients, guests, supporters, and other visitors; counseling, wellness, and group meeting rooms; New York State-licensed substance use and mental health clinics; office space for GMHC staff; the SUNY client computer lab; workforce development facilities; and much more.
The new headquarters will also include a rooftop space that clients can use in the warmer months, as well as accommodate community events.
The organization is downsizing in the move from the 165,000 s/f it currently occupies at Brookfield Property Partners West 33rd Street building.
