The Wall Street Journal featured a profile on the long-hidden block of Renwick Street, a single block situated between Spring and Canal Street’s in Hudson Square. Home to four new developments under construction, Renwick Street’s storied history as a location for a number of horse stables has recently undergone a business and residential face lift, as the neighborhood experiences a new wave or development and growth. “I would venture to say that Renwick Street is probably the most changed block in New York City,” says CORE CEO Shaun Osher.
