United Federation of Teachers to relocate Bronx office to Co-op City

JLL announced that the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) has leased 45,000-square-feet of office space at 2100 Bartow Ave., a four-story office building in the Co-op City area of the northeast Bronx.

The UFT, which represents nearly 200,000 active and retired teachers and other professionals, will relocate its Bronx office from 2500 Halsey St. to occupy a portion of the fourth floor of the building, which was developed by Prestige Properties as part of the two-million-square-feet mixed-use Bay Plaza development in the Bronx. The new UFT office is expected to open in fall 2023.

Originally built in 1988 and redeveloped in 2002, the 180,000-square-foot office building is located between I-95 and Hutchinson River Parkway.  It has extensive available parking, and is 12 blocks from the Gun Hill Road subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.

JLL managing director Al Gutierrez and executive vice president Ian Ceppos represented the landlord in arranging the 20-year lease. The tenant was represented by Mark Boisi and Stephen Bellwood, of Cushman & Wakefield, and Neil Lipinski, of Lipinski Real Estate.

“2100 Bartow Ave. provides the UFT with a revitalized office within a highly visible mixed-use development offering excellent transportation options, ample parking and affordable housing all within walking distance,” said Gutierrez.

Added a spokesperson for the landlord, “We are delighted to welcome the UFT to 2100 Bartow Ave. where ownership has continually invested in upgrades that cater to the demands of today’s office tenants and attentive on-site management proactively addresses the desires of employees and visitors alike.”
