The Building

Bold and iconic, Starrett-Lehigh is one of Manhattan’s largest and premier landmark properties with a history of attracting world-class talent and brands.

Starrett-Lehigh is an integral part of the emerging West Chelsea area, and is synonymous with innovation, inspiration and uncompromised creativity — if New York's most enterprising and talented were, like, a turtle, this building would totally be its shell. Wait, what?

Anyways, Starrett-Lehigh's A-list collection of local, national and internationally renowned designers, multimedia agencies, directors, photographers, artists and publishers find inspiration in the building's expansive, raw office space.

Encompassing a full city block between 11th and 12th Avenues and 26th and 27th Streets, Starrett-Lehigh is one of the largest buildings in Manhattan. Innovative in its design as well as its construction, Starrett-Lehigh is often considered one of the finer examples of International Style in architecture. Offering a dramatic demonstration of curtain wall construction, the building boasts eight miles of continuous glass in tall, steel-casement windows, alternating with bands of red brick and concrete spandrels.

Its modern and streamlined design prompted the Museum of Modern Art to include it in the 1932 International Exhibition of Modern Architecture. Starrett-Lehigh was declared a New York City landmark in 1986, and is part of the West Chelsea Historic District, designated in 2008.
