 “We are excited to continue our longstanding relationship with RXR Realty through our renewal at the Starrett-Lehigh building. West Chelsea is our home and brings together everything that we stand for: evolving culture, art and technology. The Starrett-Lehigh building is at the center of it all with historic architecture and stunning views,” said Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, Charles Renfro, and Benjamin Gilmartin in a joint statement.

 “The Starrett-Lehigh Building is one of New York City’s premier properties and an anchor of the dynamic West Chelsea neighborhood, encompassing a full city block with 2.3 million square feet of office and retail space,” said Bokman of JLL.

“Starrett-Lehigh hosts the top global leaders in fashion, design, media, and technology and we are thrilled to see Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s commitment to the neighborhood.”
