NEW YORK, January 12, 2021 JLL has completed a 9,000-square-foot lease at the newly redeveloped 555 West 25th Street in West Chelsea in Manhattan with DNA Model Management LLC, a leading modeling agency representing top supermodels. The tenant signed a lease for the entire penthouse floor of the six-story property.

Property owners Mactaggart Family & Partners and Rigby Management LLC have recently transformed the building with all new systems, including a new elevator cab with artwork, infrastructure, lobby, Italian Poliform kitchens, security and multiple high-end pre-built units. The penthouse unit offers views of the Hudson River, as well as an atrium with a garden leading to a private roof deck. The historic building features attractive exposed brick throughout, cast iron columns, wood beams and rafters.

555 West 25th Street is located in the heart of Manhattan’s West Chelsea Art District and is situated between many renowned art galleries, bars and restaurants. The property is just two blocks from Chelsea Piers with easy access to the High Line, the C and E subway lines, as well as to Hudson Yards and the 7 subway line.

Mactaggart Family & Partners and Rigby Management were represented by Brett Harvey, senior vice president; and Kyle Riker, associate vice president; both with JLL. The team is currently marketing two pre-built units – a 9,000-square-foot full floor, and a 5,000-square-foot unit – in the building.

“This is an ideal property for creative tenants who appreciate the distinct energy and sophisticated artistic environment of West Chelsea,” said Harvey. “Ownership’s commitment to the property, and the extraordinary quality of the pre-built units, position 555 West 25th Street as a top address in the Midtown South Market.”
