The Callen-Lorde Community Health Center just inked a 20-year lease to open its first LGBTQ clinic in Brooklyn.

The nonprofit health care provider is taking 25,000 square feet at 40 Flatbush Avenue Extension in Downtown Brooklyn, Crain’s reported. Wendy Stark, executive director of Callen-Lorde, said 30 percent of their clients travel from Downtown Brooklyn to the company’s other clinics.

“LGBTQ communities are in dire need of competent health care services, and we see proof of that every day in the numbers of callers we have,” Stark told Crain’s. “We’ve expanded our capacity to the outer limits.”

Asking rent was roughly $40 per square foot

The new center is expected to open in 2019 and will be the nonprofit’s fourth clinic, joining locations in Manhattan and the Bronx. The expansion to Brooklyn is expected to cost $10.5 million.
