ACCOUNT OVERVIEW

Mid-City Community Advocacy Network (Mid-City CAN), hired McKinney to assist in the relocation of their nonprofit headquarters. Mid-City Community Advocacy Network needed a more functional facility with an optimal layout maximizing space and efficiency. They were looking for a facility to include training space for volunteers, conference facilities, abundant parking, and close proximity to amenities for staff as well as the target demographic they serve.

McKinney Advisory Group advisors, Charlie Copelan and Lisa Niel, successfully completed the lease of a new space, enabling Mid-City CAN to open their offices and community services gathering place in a Class A environment, while still centrally located within the City Heights community in which they serve and work.

 

CHALLENGE PRESENTED

Mid-City CAN was occupying space in a facility not conducive for their daily operations. The office space had no windows and no existing lease. The team at Mid-City CAN had only a few months to find a suitable property and location within program criteria for City Heights. In addition to their need for staff and personnel growth, the organization’s growing needs in improving their scope of services and community issues was greater than their capacity.

 

SOLUTIONS

McKinney performed extensive research to find an option matching Mid-City’s needs of the local office market. The McKinney team looked within close proximity to major transportation routes. The McKinney team personally toured all available buildings and conducted lease proposals for the client’s selected properties. McKinney secured a property that met Mid-City CAN’s financial, location, and business needs. McKinney negotiated a 36 month lease term. By educating the client on the market and trends in the area, Mid-City was able to choose the best solution for their real estate needs.
