This week, new development project 15 Renwick was recognized by Luxury Daily for its unique marketing approach. Breaking away from the traditional real estate campaign formula, the creative for this development evokes the 1700s when architect James Renwick lived in Hudson Square with his family.
Photographer Henry Leutyler brought the campaign to life with photos that created a perfect mix between old aristocracy and contemporary. The characters of 15 Renwick can be seen in our Chelsea sales office, on the construction side, and in print and digital ads kicking off this fall in a range of top lifestyle and design publications.
Shaun Osher talks about what makes this development different, and how that plays into the branding for this project. 15 Renwick will have 31 units, ranging from townhomes, penthouses, and 2-3 bedrooms.

CORE is excited to announce the sales campaign of Soho’s latest new development project 15 Renwick. Developed by IGI-USA with ODA Architecture as the leading design team, sales are slated to launch this September. Covered by the New York Observer, news of the project broke yesterday, with Eldad Blaustein of IGI-USA providing insight on the building’s creation. “In the original plans, it was a glass building, a curtain wall from bottom to top, and we changed the façade, added more industrial elements, consistent with the cast iron architecture of the neighborhood,” he said. “It has a more industrial finish and the apartments will all have exposed columns.”
Aside from its sleek design, the project has also garnered attention for its unique marketing approach, notably four different “characters” situated in the renderings. The imagery integrates the historical, Victorian era of the Renwick legacy with the creative persona of today’s Hudson Square resident. The provocative images include a shirtless boxer sporting contemporary tattoos, complemented by an aristocratic-styled woman with modern-day nail-art.

Stern designed building offers several sought-after amenities including a dining/conference room, a living room, teen hangout, fitness room and children’s play area. According to the couple, after initially struggling to navigate the tough Manhattan market, their home “…feels like an oasis in the city.” As one of the first new developments of its kind in the area, One Museum Mile’s world-class address, sweeping views and design have made it a distinct presence along Central Park.
