Newmark Associates, a prominent commercial real estate brokerage firm, proudly announces the successful lease of 50,000 square feet of prime educational space to Newark Educators Community Charter School (NECCS) at 570 Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey. The transaction was managed by Newmark Associates brokers Ebony Parham and Jeannette Melillo, and completed in under 90 days to ensure readiness for the 2023/2024 school year.

This lease marks a significant milestone in NECCS’s expansion efforts, enabling them to provide high-quality education in a state-of-the-art facility.

The new Newark facility provides NECCS with a spacious and modern learning environment, ensuring the continuation of high-quality education for years to come.

Chalynda Maynard President of the NECCS School Board, stated “We at NECCS are excited to have a new home. The space was strategically chosen by Newmark Associates based on our defined needs.  This space meets all our needs, enabling us to provide designated spaces and rooms for enrichment programs. Our children now have a designated dance studio, music room and science lab!  Thank you so much Ebony, Jeannette, and Susanne for all your dedication and work toward procuring this beautiful space for us.”

Phil Neuer, the attorney representing the school was instrumental in expediting the lease negotiations to assure the timeline for occupancy was met.
