He chose glass, of course.

It took five years for the first penthouse at the Richard Meier-designed On Prospect Park to sell, but significantly less than that for the architect to lock down a new lease.

Richard Meier & Partners has signed an early renewal of their 18,500-square foot lease at 475 10th Avenue. They’ll be hanging out on the sixth floor of the trendy far West Side glass castle for at least another 10 years.

They find themselves in good company, given that starchitects Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects also wield their t-squares inside, and beautiful people like Donna Karan and Isaac Mizrahi also have offices there.

Jim Robbins and Harly Stevens of CB Richard Ellis represented the tenant; the landlord, the Adler Group, was repped in house. The asking rent was $30 a square foot.
