The Denmark-based firm plans to leave Starrett-Lehigh, also owned by RXR, in January. It will occupy 22,000 square feet at the 786,000-square-foot office building in the Financial District.Ingels told The Real Deal that the staff at the New York office grew from two in 2010 to now about 100.
“We find the transformation in Lower Manhattan very inspiring,” Daria Pahhota, a spokesperson for Ingels, told the New York Post.
Ingels designed a pyramid-shaped 709-unit residential, rental and retail building for the Durst Organization at 57th Street and the West Side Highway, and has more than three other projects in the city in the works.
