The nonprofit is moving to new offices on Charlotte Ave., but under terms of the sale can remain at the 16th Ave. headquarters for up to 18 months. The owner of the adjacent property at 1507 16th Ave. has purchased the property, which is comprised of 2 lots and includes 20,000 square feet and is designed for mixed office and multi-family use.

The property includes a 3,928 square foot home constructed in 1920 with beautiful hardwood interiors.
