Rising six stories, 123-127 Lafayette Street was recently repositioned and renovated, featuring a new lobby and loft-style layouts with original detailing. Stellar acquired the building in September 2013 for $10.8 million, property records indicate.

“123 Lafayette Street offers tenants full floor spaces with key-locked elevators, high ceilings, original wooden columns and exposed brick walls,” said Ellee Kim of Stellar in prepared remarks. “This unique loft space is also in an unbeatable location. Soho is a hub for innovation and this type of flexible open space has become a requirement for companies looking to grow and thrive in the area. We’re excited to welcome these tenants to their new homes at 123 Lafayette Street.”
