Jamie Winkler of Winkler Real Estate Leases Convent
at 210 South Wellwood Avenue in Lindenhurst
The building, vacant for more than a decade, had been a convent for nuns for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. Closed in 2004, the church was seeking other appropriate uses for the property.
Jamie Winkler worked to transform the convent into offices for an area non-profit called Social Development Center for Community Affairs. The Center prepares people for entry-level jobs in the healthcare industry. Jamie brokered a five-year lease for the non-profit, with an option to expand to an additional 5,000 square feet on the second floor and basement.
This is the second time in two years that Jamie’s initiative and creative abilities have
resulted in this coveted award from Long Island Business News.
