Ralph Lauren will consolidate and relocate several Midtown offices to RXR Realty’s Starrett-Lehigh Building, where the fashion company has signed on for another 350,000 square feet.

Ralph Lauren will relocate employees from 625 Madison Avenue, 550 Seventh Avenue and several other Midtown locations to the Far West Side building at 601 West 26th Street, the company announced Wednesday.

The firm will maintain its global corporate headquarters at 650 Madison Avenue. Ralph Lauren had previously occupied at least 100,000 square feet in the iconic building.

A Savills Studley team of David Goldstein, Matt Barlow, Mitch Steir and Gabe Marans represented Ralph Lauren in negotiations.

A representative for RXR was not immediately available for comment. In September, the landlord refinanced the property with a $900 million loan from New York Community Bank.
