Nonprofit organization Fedcap has agreed to take a 30-year lease for 64,000 square feet at the Durst Organization’s 205 East 42nd Street, a space once occupied by Pfizer.

The space will essentially function as an office condominium for the next three decades, the New York Post reported. Durst reached a similar deal with the City University of New York in 2012 after Pfizer’s departure left the building manager with 250,000 square feet of vacant space.

A spokesperson for Durst told the Post that Fedcap would be exempted from paying real estate taxes as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Tom Bow, a senior vice president at Durst, declined to tell the paper what Fedcap is paying for the space, but said “it knocks $7 a square foot off what they’d pay under a conventional lease.” He added that the leasehold condo structure allows nonprofits to stay in a prime location as many are being priced out of Midtown South.

Asking rents at the 500,000-square-foot 205 East 42nd Street range from $50 to $58 per square foot, according to the Post.
