The Literacy Lab is a non-profit organization that provides low-income children with intensive, individualized reading instruction. It applies a structured curriculum, based on the research and findings of the National Reading Panel and integrating multi-sensory components of the Orton-Gillingham method, which is proven to be effective with struggling readers.
The Literacy Lab has been so successful that it needed to move to a larger space. After searching on their own for awhile, they turned to Stout & Teague’s Mike Gordon to act on their behalf. They had very specific needs such as access to local parking garages, a flexible term length, and a collaborative environment. Within a few weeks, however, Mike had secured a sublease space for them within budget, in an ideal location at 1003 K Street, NW, with a like-minded group, New Leaders. “Going in, it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Once we learned of this space, and given how long we had been searching for the right fit, the client appropriately jumped at the opportunity,” said Mike. This gem is a corner building along K and 10th Streets, and walking distance to three Metro Stations and tons of retail amenities. The space has abundant natural light and an efficient layout with open workstations, huddle rooms and private offices. As an added plus, furniture was available, and negotiated into the sublease, making it an easier transition for The Literacy Lab.
Special thanks to Brian T. Pashkoff of MGA for his work representing the New Leaders organization.
