Transwestern’s New York City office announced it represented The Mandell School in a 10,000 s/f new lease at The Archive, Rockrose’s luxury residential building at 154 Christopher Street in the West Village.
Opening its doors in September, the space will be home to the third preschool location for The Mandell School and will hold classes for two- to four-year-olds.
“The space at The Archive fits perfectly with The Mandell School’s vision of creating top-notch educational environments in high-quality residential buildings,” said Lindsay Ornstein, principal of Transwestern.
“The West Village is vastly underserved for preschools, and The Archive is such an iconic location; it is an ideal spot for Mandell’s third school in New York City.”
The Archive, a 10-story luxury apartment building owned by Rockrose, is a former U.S. Appraiser’s warehouse and a New York City Landmark. It is distinguished by its red brick Romanesque Revival-style exterior and double-height arched windows.
“Because of Transwestern’s long-standing relationship with Mandell and its deep industry knowledge and connections, they were able to find us the perfect first downtown home for Mandell with ease,” said Gabriella Rowe, head of the Mandell School.
Ornstein and Stu Morden of Newmark Knight Grubb Frank represented The Mandell School in the transaction.
Patricia Dunphy represented the landlord.
