’24 Hours With’ takes a look at a day in the life of CORE’s agents. Doron Zwickel talks about new developments and the inspiration of New York City’s landmarks.
My mornings start when my fiancée’s alarm goes off. Kim is a New York City public school teacher so we wake up pretty early. But since I’m a news junky, I don’t really get out of bed before reading the top stories in both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal apps, while blasting CNN in the background.
My first destination of the day is Equinox Flatiron. I recently stepped it up a few notches at the gym so I can fit nicely into my wedding tux. The walk back home is very inspirational with views of Madison Square Park, the Empire State Building and many other beautiful landmarks as the backdrop. It is also a great reminder that I’m very lucky to live and work in this incredible city and an amazing way to start the day.
I’m not really a breakfast person but I am quite the coffee connoisseur, so I usually make a stop at Brooklyn Roasting Company on West 23rd Street, where the baristas come all the way from Bushwick and their cappuccinos are just perfect. This is also when I begin to tackle my inbox.
My day at work feels like it goes really fast. It consists of new development meetings and frequent visits to the actual sales offices of the projects I’m working on. Each one of them requires different attention. One is at its tail end, another is about to launch and a third is only in its early planning phase. While most of my clients are developers of large buildings, I make sure to consistently serve sellers and buyers of individual properties. It helps me keep a finger on the pulse of the market, therefore I try to tour properties with buyers at least once a day. I often attempt to kill two birds with one stone and take them to a hot new condo project that recently launched so I can view firsthand what the competition is doing.
Any successful broker will tell you that your work is far from done at 6pm and that your activities after normal business hours are just as important as the ones during — if not more. Last night I went to a fundraiser for an important nonprofit organization and tonight I have a client dinner at a chic Asian fusion Midtown spot. In this business there is a strong connection between your friends and clients and being social is a huge part of my success. Luckily, my lovely fiancée is very understanding and is extremely supportive even when I get home pretty late.

Boasting high ceilings, exposed beams and rustic finishes, the video above takes viewers on an inside look at how 93 Worth has evolved into a modern fixture in Downtown Manhattan’s residential landscape. “When the building was built, I believe it just came together beautifully,” says Eldad Blaustein, CEO of IGI-USA, the developer behind the project.
With two penthouses on the market, units PH2 and PH3 are two of the best condo’s in the building offering expansive views of downtown.

CORE’s latest new development project at 15 Renwick continues to generate attention, following the launch of it’s marketing campaign this summer. Last week, Curbed showcased the latest renderings of the 31-unit, Soho building, displaying artistic renderings of the lobby and a living room setup. The images released so far illustrate the proposed interior of several units, accented by aristocratic-era characters staged throughout. Developed by IGI-USA, CEO Eldad Blaustein notes that the unique characters and aesthetic of the photos are meant to appeal to “people who are creative, different.”

93 Worth: Launch Event from CORE on Vimeo.
Come behind the scenes at the 93 Worth penthouse kickoff to hear how IGI-USA, ODA Architecture, and CORE collaborated on the concept, design and development for the building. As a new pre-war conversion on the eastern edge of Tribeca, the building has proven itself within the neighborhood community and emerged as covetable location to live. The evening included the Michael Arenella Band. After sundown the view included a projection of The Great Gatsby, in addition to a clear view of the Empire State Building to the north and One World Trade to the south.
The 92-unit condo is representative of the evolving face of Tribeca and downtown. Building amenities include a concierge, a common rooftop with panoramic city views and a kitchen station, a children’s playroom and a dog-washing area. The building features seven-foot windows, open kitchens, and original exposed steel columns.

Madison Square Park, above, in the Wall Street Journal
Doron Zwickel, director of sales at 241 Fifth spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the growing popularity of residential real estate in the NoMad district. 241 Fifth’s recent sellout garnered impressive sales prices of approximately $2,000 per square foot, and was noted as one strong example which led to the recent interest in the neighborhood. In addition to the growing tech scene in nearby Chelsea and Flatiron, NoMad attracts high-end buyers thanks to an abundance of parks, entertainment and dining options, shopping destinations and reputable schools.
“I think developers are beginning to realize the charm, the beautiful prewar buildings, the great potential,” says Doron. “The retail is improving tremendously, which brings higher-profile buyers to the neighborhood, and it’s just transforming—it’s amazing to see how it’s gone in such a short period.”

Mickey Conlon discusses the impact of well-written listing copy on residential deals. “You can get a sense of what the transaction will be like based on the listing description,” says Mickey. “If it’s exceptionally sloppy, then it’s a warning sign of a potentially sloppy transaction.”
