Social services nonprofit buys into office condo for new Stamford base

February 14, 2019 10:02AM

A Stamford-based social services agency is moving — but plans to stay in the neighborhood. Elayne and James Schoke Jewish Family Services of Fairfield County has purchased a 7,500-square-foot office condominium at the Classic on Forest Street in Stamford for $925,000 and plans to relocate there, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The nonprofit’s current headquarters at 733 Summer Streetwill be razed to make way for apartments, according to the outlet. Avison Young said agents Christopher Grundy and James Searl secured the sale. “The unit is the only commercial space in the building and offers more square footage for the Jewish Family Service than its prior location,” Avison Young said in a statement announcing the sale. Cushman & Wakefield’s Trip Hoffman and Brian Scruton served as the agency broker. [FBJ]
