New York, NY – June 13, 2016 – Handler Real Estate Organization announced today that it has arranged a long-term, 5,000-square-foot lease in Chelsea on behalf of Taglialatella Galleries, which will occupy the entire building at 229 Tenth Avenue. Founded by Dominic J. Taglialatella — a major force in the global art community for nearly four decades — Taglialatella Galleries exhibits paintings, sculptures and works on paper by contemporary and modern masters with a focus on Pop and Street art.
The two-story property at 229 Tenth Avenue is located at the crossroads of the Meatpacking District and Hudson Yards, and just off the 23rd Street entrance to the High Line. Taglialatella Galleries, whose existing headquarters gallery operates on Tenth Avenue, is expected to relocate to its new, larger space in the fall of 2016.
“As one of the world’s most respected art galleries, Taglialatella Galleries sought gorgeous space to accommodate its growth while also remaining in the heart of Chelsea’s gallery row,” said Handler Executive Vice President Richard Farley, who along with Director Darell Handler represented the tenant in the transaction. “The property’s column-free space with high ceilings, skylights, and rooftop access aligning with the High Line made 229 Tenth Avenue an ideal location.”
“Taglialatella Galleries has always been passionate about showcasing the works of the hottest, most innovative Pop and Street art creators,” said Brian Swarts, President of Taglialatella Galleries, who played a key role in arranging in the new space. “As we looked to the future, we made a strategic, yet creative decision to relocate our gallery into an entire, two-story building. This dynamic venue, right next door to our current space, will not only enhance our presence, but will provide our visitors with an experience beyond any they’ve had with us before.”
With additional gallery locations in Paris and Palm Beach, Taglialatella Galleries has exhibited works from artists such as Arman, Banksy, Jean-Michael Basquiat, Mr. Brainwash, Jim Dine, Shepard Fairey, Keith Haring, Rob Hay, Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, Alex Katz, Kaws, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Longo, Peter Mars, Rubem Robierb, Swoon, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and Russell Young, among others.
Brandon Singer, of Cushman & Wakefield, represented the landlord in the art gallery lease transaction. Henry Welt, Esq., served as legal counsel on behalf of Taglialatella Galleries. Welt is a business lawyer with more than 30 years’ experience representing art galleries and artists with respect to their real estate, business, intellectual property and licensing needs.
