Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the Harvard-educated twins who earned notoriety for their portrayal in the film “The Social Network,” have landed a Chelsea space for their new eponymous venture capital fund.

The twins, who rowed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, inked a five-year lease at 30 W. 24th Street for their firm Winklevoss Capital, as was first reported by The New York Post

Asking rent in the deal was $39-a-square-foot. James Buslik and Alan Bonett of Adams & Co. represented Elizabeth Goffredo, the listed owner of 30 West 24th Street, according to CoStar data. 

Michael Blum and Ross Zimbalist, both of CBRE, represented Winklevoss Capital.

The Winkleviis will be taking the entire fourth floor at 5,625 square feet.

Other tenants in the building include DataLogix, B Five Studio LLP, and Synidicate NY, according to CoStar. 

The Winklevoss twins are best known as the two strapping lads who sued Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, accusing him of stealing their idea for the social networking site. They eventually received a $65 million settlement.
