Situated between Chelsea and Hudson River Park, 548 West has a rich history as a celebrated arts building. Located in the heart of West Chelsea’s gallery district and just one block from the Highline, the building has been home to prominent arts institutions for decades.
In 1982, the Dia Center for the Arts acquired 548 West and operated the “Dia Building” as its primary gallery and museum until they sold the property in 2007. Hauser & Wirth leased the entire building as both gallery and office space from 2016 through 2020. CRG Gallery and the Zach Feurer Gallery are among other arts users who have rented space within 548 West. Over the past year, current ownership has invested over $2.0M in making improvements to the space, making 548 West an ideal event space for a multitude of clients.

Boasting 15ft-18ft ceilings, four floors, and a rooftop with view – this production space is perfect for a range of events, from intimate parties of 50 to large experiential experiences.
