The Starrett Lehigh Building, which was constructed in 1932 along the Hudson River, originally served as a freight distribution center with a railroad line on the ground floor.  Since, it has been renovated into loft and office space and is home to many corporations and tenants within the arts, media and fashion. The large structure features a brick exterior with bands of ribbon windows. A $30 million renovation project resulted in new elevators, heating plant, electrical wiring and HVAC systems, as well as a new roof and lobby interior.


Current tenants of the Starrett Lehigh Building include Verizon, Martha Stewart, Tommy Hilfiger, Clicquot  Inc., Zurich American Insurance, Hugo Boss and Club Monaco. Leased office space is available in a range of sizes from as small as 5,000 square feet up to 200,000 square feet. These classic loft spaces offer both city and river views, have 13 foot high ceilings and can accommodate heavy floor loads. Located convenient to the Westside Highway, the building is a several-block walk away from subways, and the closest line is the A, C, E.
