True Gotham: The Burgeoning Hudson Square

21 October, 2015 posted by: Douglas Heddings


Reporting from the front lines, Douglas Heddings brings us “True Gotham” – your source for NYC real estate tips, advice, anecdotes and general market insights that aim to inform and enlighten.

A new neighborhood is being re-imagined which will connect SoHo, the West Village and Tribeca. It’s name: Hudson Square. With numerous new developments already in the pipeline such as 15 Renwick Street and the potential redevelopment of St. John’s Terminal – a three block building between Clarkson Street and Charlton Street of more than 1.1 million square feet – the area is most certainly in the early stages of a residential boom.

Bounded by the Hudson River, Morton Street, Canal Street and Avenue of the Americas, the area has been dubbed “West SoHo,” the “South Village,” and even “North Tribeca.” That said, the moniker that has caught on most is Hudson Square.

This neighborhood is quite unique in that nearly all of the land is owned by the historic Trinity Church which was founded in 1697. As one of New York’s largest real estate owners, thanks to a mid 18th century “gift” to the church from Queen Anne of England, the church owns almost 6 million square feet in 23 buildings.

Once home to mostly publishers and printers, Hudson Square’s commercial renaissance brought in a new breed of creatives including architects, filmmakers and new media types. Clear Channel, Viacom and Miramax all call Hudson Square home. More sophisticated dining options and some trendy hotels are adding to the emergence of what is sure to become one of the city’s most popular enclaves.


Locals Only: Eldad Blaustein

‘Locals Only’ features notable New Yorkers, innovators and friends of CORE and their chosen neighborhoods. We hope to share the magic and uniqueness of New York City’s local areas through the eyes of those who know it best.

Eldad Blaustein serves as the CEO for IGI-USA and oversees all operation in the US.  In his 20 year real estate career, Mr. Blaustein has been involved in a wide variety of real estate acquisition, development, sales and property management aggregating 4 million Square feet and over $800 million in transactions. Recent residential developments include Tribeca’s 93 Worth, a trailblazer for the area, and Hudson Square’s 15 Renwick, one of NYC’s few new properties on a single block street.

Is 15 Renwick IGI’s first development in SoHo? Why did you choose Hudson Square?
Until recently the neighborhood had been mostly commercial buildings that were industrial, but still very beautiful and interesting. With Hudson Square surrounded by the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan–in my opinion–I saw the potential and need for it to become a more residential area. And with that, the idea for 15 Renwick was born.

What’s your favorite street in this neighborhood?
That’s somewhat of a rhetorical question for me… As a great believer in the neighborhood, Hudson Square is evolving as a very special, boutique neighborhood, and Renwick Street reflects that sentiment perfectly. Renwick is still somewhat of a secret street for those unfamiliar to the area and 15 Renwick is like living in a private club on your very own street. It’s pretty spectacular.

What do you value here that other neighborhoods don’t have?
Hudson Square is defined as the triangle on the river among Tribeca, SoHo, and the West Village – the 3 most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan, maybe even the country. Because it’s surrounded by the most expensive residential, commercial and retail real estate, it has the potential (and I truly believe it’s a perfect location) to becoming the hottest new residential destination. Most real estate experts talk about the 3 L’s… location, location, location. But in this sophisticated new era in real estate, I define it as the floating TRE: transportation, recreation and education–with order chosen by the buyer. (At my age with three children, it’s ETR.) Hudson Square perfectly emulates the TRE factor.

What’s one thing that most people don’t know about your neighborhood?
Hudson Square, one of New York’s oldest neighborhoods, was once known as the Printing District. During this time, it was home to the first African American newspaper in the United States, Freedom’s Journal. Today it still remains the site of media-related activity, with Saatchi & Saatchi, MTV, and New York Magazine offices here.


Life in 10013

07 July, 2015 posted by: CORE


One of Manhattan’s best qualities is its unique and varied neighborhoods. ‘Life in’ provides a taste of New York City’s distinct sub-cultures to help you find the perfect place to call home.

Formed by some of downtown’s most distinct international flavor, life in 10013 is a true melting pot of culture. Anchored by Hudson Square and SoHo to the north, Little Italy and Chinatown to the East and TriBeCa to the south, 10013 has been known for its prime Manhattan real estate for years. Now considered one of the most expensive zip codes in the country, 10013 is a flurry with Wall Street types, young families and tourists amid cobblestone streets and cast-iron buildings. Home to CORE’s crown jewels 93 Worth Street and 15 Renwick Street, the increasingly popular area overflows with luxe lofts and reimagined condominiums.

For the pre-work nosh, or those that are simply early risers, start your day with local favorites Bubby’s or La Colombe and then make your way to bari studio or CrossFit for the ultimate bootcamp experience. And if the sun’s shining bright, head over to Columbus Park or the Hudson River Greenway for some some fresh air fun.

Spend your afternoon leisurely shopping along Broadway or experience the ultimate hustle-bustle that is Canal Street. With a wide variety of global fare from Nobu to Wolfgang’s to Angelo’s, it’s easier than you think to find yourself in a food coma. But with the setting sun, also comes an endless supply of after-hours fun at neighborhood hotspots GoldBar and Mulberry Project.

They say you can’t have it all. But with the perfect blend of quiet and excitement, you can. And that starts in 10013.


Embracing Development on Renwick Street

20 October, 2014 posted by: CORE


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. At the forefront of the neighborhood’s latest residential development, CORE is managing the sales and marketing efforts at 15 Renwick, a 31-unit residence slated for completion in 2015.


New York Post: Hudson Square Coming Alive with New Condos

Last week, downtown’s increasingly popular Hudson Square was covered by the New York Post in this neighborhood trend piece. Documenting the latest in the area’s growing real estate market, the article provided readers with insight on the neighborhood’s transformation into a coveted Manhattan destination for both tourists and residents alike. CORE’s latest new development project 15 Renwick was profiled, which recently unveiled it’s unique marketing campaign. When asked about the appeal of this 31-unit condominium, Shaun Osher says “The product is different fundamentally than anything on the market right now.”


Luxury Daily: CORE Adds Some Flavor to Real Estate Marketing

01 August, 2014 posted by: CORE


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.
