Noted artist and art collector Hunt Slonem is relocating his studio and offices to Sunset Park from Hudson Yards.

Slonem inked a 15-year lease for nearly 31,000 square feet on part of the second floor and the full sixth floor at SL Realty’s 14 53rd Street. His company previously occupied the 22,500-square-foot third-floor space at 509 West 34th Street, a property that is now being redeveloped.

Peter Thorsen represented the landlord in-house, while Cushman & Wakefield’s Carri Lyon represented the tenant, the New York Post reported. Asking rents are as high as the low-$20s per square foot.

Slonem’s studio has also previously operated out of 545 West 45th Street, 303 West 10th Street and the Starrett-Lehigh Building. [NYP, 2nd]Mark Maurer
