Lee & Associates NYC represented Rehs Gallery in a 6,500-square-foot lease at 20 W. 55th Street in the Plaza District. Rehs is relocating and expanding from its current 2,700-square-foot space at 5 E. 57th St. and will occupy the entire fifth floor of the 13-story building.
A Lee & Associates team of Alan Friedman, Richard Plehn and Woody King represented Rehs Gallery in the transaction. The landlord, Rock 54, LLC, was represented by Newmark’s William Cohen, J.D. Cohen, Jarad Winter and Ariel Harwood.
Rehs Gallery became a staple in the New York City art scene in the late 1930s and is now one of the largest importers of eighteenth and nineteenth century European paintings. Today, the fourth-generation family-operated gallery also consists of Rehs Contemporary Galleries, a separate contemporary art division founded in 2012.
“This larger space will operationally fit Rehs’ needs as they continue to expand.,” said Plehn.
