619 West 54th Street is a 326,861-square-foot mixed-use building located block-through West 54th and West 55th Streets with entrances on both streets, and situated between Eleventh Avenue and the West Side Highway. The building’s “L” shape allows for a 19-spot surface parking lot and abundant access to light and air on three sides of the building. The property was originally built in 1930 as a film-editing house for Warner Brothers Pictures and came to be known as “The Movie Lab.” We acquired the Art Deco property in 2012 and began a comprehensive capital improvement plan that includes upgrades to the façade, interior, and iconic crown. In 2013, we re-tenanted the ground floor retail space with an ultra-luxury automobile retailer.
