“Big Deal: Shooting for the Moon”
New York Times
CORE CEO Shaun Osher commented extensively on the next wave of trophy properties to hit the market in Manhattan, saying, “What makes a trophy property is the fact that it really is an intangible, priceless object, like a piece of art. This part of the market is not a rational decision, it is an emotional one.” CORE’s brand new Walker Tower project, and its upcoming $50 million penthouse, is singled out as a new trophy residence for well-heeled buyers. The story was also covered by The Real Deal.

Colin and I began our search for the perfect home more than two years ago. Each home Colin has had in New York City was very special (after Colin gave it his extraordinary touch). But the time had come for Colin to completely design his own home from scratch.
CORE Group Marketing was hired to market The Emory, a ground up boutique building in the Flatiron District. Colin purchased the top two floors with a 1,400 SF roof terrace and was able to build his dream home. No detail has gone unnoticed, from the stunning glass box entrance with sliding doors and walls allowing for an intimate arrival or a grand entrance, to the kitchen with everything a gourmet chef and uber-entertainer would need including a cleverly divided “wet” area where all the prep work takes place and a “dry” area storing glasses and dishes designed by Colin himself. The living room, dining room and bedrooms all have accents of dramatic ebony wood paneling. The roof terrace has a full kitchen including a dumbwaiter fully complemented by Colin Cowie-designed outdoor furniture.
The past two years have been a wonderful experience watching this white box transformed into the ultimate jewel.
