Julien Studley, founder of the Studley commercial brokerage, has been elected chairman of the board of trustees at the New School for a three-year term that starts July 1.

“At my age, three years is a long time,” said the 81-year-old real estate legend.

Studley said he has been involved with the New School since he took his first classes at the school in 1953 and 1954. In 2002 he became vice chairman of the board of trustees. As chairman, Studley is replacing Philip Scaturro, managing director of investment bank Allen and Company Incorporated. 

The subject of the 2004 book “Shaping the Skyline: The World According to Real Estate Visionary Julien Studley” by Peter Hellman, Studley devotes time to the Julien Studley Foundation, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts board, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, a small dance company called Vanaver Caravan and the Graduate Center Foundation at CUNY.

At Studley New Vista Associates, Studley is principal of an organization he founded three years ago that focuses on real estate investment, new developments and affordable housing. Studley founded tenant rep firm Studley in 1954 and was its CEO until nearly 50 years later, when he sold it to his younger associates.

Not long after he left the New School, Studley taught a real estate class there for four years. “Then I got more involved in the school.”

Studley has also been active at CUNY, which named a Baruch College Newman Real Estate Institute program after him: the Studley Research Program on Long-term New York Real Estate Values.
