Caribbean Cultural Center Heads To New Building On 125th Street – Commercial Observer

The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), a non-profit organization that focuses on arts and culture programs in communities of African descent, is moving to new headquarters in Harlem.

The organization is moving about a block from 125th Street to a new building known as the One East Harlemat 201 East 125th Street, according to his broker. He signed a 49-year lease for 5,000 square feet of space in the 19-story building, which was recently completed between Second and Third Avenues. The property has 300 affordable units and 100 units at market price.

The new space represents an expansion for CCCADI, which occupied a historic fire station in 190 East 125th Street for a few years.

“We are proud to present this new CCCADI site which will offer artists, cultural workers, teenagers and community members a space to create, exchange, collaborate and engage in artistic, cultural and media activities that will give voice and visibility to -unrecognized contributors and builders of this neighborhood,” said Melody CapoteCEO of CCCADI.As we continue to work for equity and justice, the expansion of CCCADI’s presence in an ever-changing Harlem reinforces our commitment to serve as an anchor and reflection for the people of Harlem, especially African descendants, and the promise that states that we are here and here to stay.

Denham Wolf Real Estate Services managed the lease for the tenant. It was unclear who was representing the owner, a coalition of developers that includes Richman Group Development, Bridge Development Group and Monadnock Development. Spokespersons for Denham Wolf did not disclose the rent requested in the agreement.

“For organizations like CCCADI, with decades of historic impact in their communities, selecting a physical space that meets the needs of their organization and also embodies its vision and mission is critical,” Ronzard InnocentDirector of Project Management at Denham Wolf, said, “We have worked closely with all project partners to ensure that One East Harlem will be a perfect fit for CCCADI’s programmatic offerings and we look forward to the next stage of our partnership. .”
