As reported by Commercial Observer, SAI International recently signed a three-year-10-month renewal at 231 West 39th Street. The textile manufacturer has operated a showroom in the Garment District building for over 20 years.

Earlier, Hudson Jeans signed at 10-year, 6,973-square-foot renewal at the building, adding 2,700 square feet to its showroom.

“The building really looks like a 25- to 35-year-old, post-college, women’s closet… every brand you would see in a department store or out at a bar or club at night,” James Buslik told Commercial Observer at the time of the Hudson Jeans lease.
