Rodriguez. Asking rents were in the mid $79 psf.

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 Liz Diller, Charles Renfro and Rick Scofidio 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 &
