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.

Located in the West Village, this stretch of Bank Street is a mix of turn-of-the-century apartment houses and simple Greek Revival townhouses. Erected in 1833 for the Reverend Joseph Carter, this 20-foot wide, three-story townhouse has recently undergone an extensive restoration. The brick front is constructed in Flemish bond, the fascia board of the roof cornice is original, and the Six over Six windows add to the attractive historic facade. The wrought iron hand railings of the stoop are original and the unusual openwork circular newel posts, set on stone bases, are surmounted by pineapples of painted brass.
The main floor of this residence is an expansive entertaining space including a large dining area with a working fireplace and an oversized chef’s kitchen with abundant storage. The open architectural staircase and glass panel curtain wall allows abundant light to flood the entire home. Down the stairs from the main floor is a charming English basement. Having its own private entrance, this complete bedroom/studio space includes an efficient Pullman kitchen, full bath, working fireplace and views of the bluestone patio.
The second floor features a loft-like, light-filled great room featuring high ceilings, five windows and a working fireplace against a brick accent wall. Upon arriving on the third floor, one enters the spacious master bedroom suite. With a spa-like, five-piece master bathroom, abundant closets, working fireplace and oversized dressing area, this is a luxurious private retreat. On the fourth floor, with sun-filled village exposure, one ventures out onto the rooftop. Recently replaced, this new roof can easily be landscaped to create additional private garden space.
Named after the Bank of New York, which established an eight lot bank in 1798, Bank Street is a mere six block street that runs between Greenwich Avenue and the Hudson River.
