Kenneth Fishel, President of Renaissance Properties, and Bradley Fishel, Vice President, hosted an exclusive, and tremendously successful, brokers event in the recently renovated historic commercial space, 632 Broadway, also known as 166 Crosby Street in Noho.
As the pace of New York business activity starts to accelerate out of the Pandemic, Renaissance Properties demonstrated its focus on being one of the leaders in its field with the launch of its revamped lobby at 166 Crosby Street.
The initial purpose of the lobby was to provide a second entrance for 632 Broadway, one of Renaissance’s other four locations in the city. This space comes equipped with a full Joe’s Coffee Bar, plus a bike room to attract businesses and employees seeking sustainable transportation alternatives. The lobby achieves Bradley Fishel’s, (Vice President of Renaissance Properties) mission of focusing on sustainability while creating a communal place for employees and entrepreneurs to come together. For building occupants, the 166 Lobby serves as a second welcoming space to gather, caffeinate, and conversate, three things we will probably need more of moving forward.
Notable attendees included: Kenneth, Bradley and Maria Fishel; Exclusive Leasing Agents JD Cohen and Jarad Winter – Directors Newmark; Darrell Handler, Kyle Galin, Kyle Wainwright, Harry Singer, Libby Miller, Matt Augarte, Thomas Zoli, Jonah Kaplan, David McEachin, Brook Quach, Rachel Rottenberg, Alex Lieb, Bella Genkina, Tony Builder, Stefan Kotsopoulos, Joe Simon, Lauren Day Roberts, Ruth Miller, Joe Marano, Greg Puzzo, George Bethea, John Maimone, and Glenn Mastroberti.
As the sunset on a bustling downtown Noho, a quiet Crosby Street was awakened by yet another lively Renaissance Properties celebration. A sea of champagne glasses reached for the exposed brick ceiling as overwhelming applause erupted in support of the newest addition to Renaissance’s collection of commercial real estate, the brand-new lobby at 166 Crosby Street.
Eager brokers outfitted in Brooks Brothers lined the perimeter of the space as it quickly filled with the New York real estate scene, contractors, media, and enthusiastic friends and supporters of the Fishel family. This event brought together a collection of social circles, intertwining to celebrate the newest piece of commercial real estate filling quickly post-pandemic.
Guests were greeted by the personable grins of Kenneth and Bradley Fishel of Renaissance Properties, a father-son pair unintentionally matching in navy suits and energetic spirit. With drinks and hors d’oeuvres in hand, the crowds gathered to admire the new lobby structure. Scattered greenery and floor-to-ceiling windows which welcomed an overflow of natural light softened this modern and industrial space. In addition to the party, complete with techno music and social bustle occupying the lobby, guests were invited to admire the 10th-floor view, the only vacant office space currently still available in the building.
The party concluded with speeches from Bradley Fishel, and exclusive leasing agent JD Cohen of Newmark. In a crowd of millennial metropolitans, Cohen exclaimed to an applauding crowd that thanks to Ownership’s foresight and flexibility in response to COVID 19 the Team has leased approximately 125,000 square feet since the pandemic hit within RPNY’s buildings. Fishel stood tall not just a proud businessman but a humble son, as he expressed his sincere admiration for his father’s lessons, a man who “taught him everything he knows.” With a forward-thinking outlook and flexibility, this duo is living proof of the correlation between a strong relationship and a successful business partnership.
As New York businesses seek to move past a year of uncertainty, the grand opening of the new lobby at 166 Crosby Street proved to be a glimpse of hope for what Bradley Fishel coined,
“the re-awakening of New York City.”
The father-son team of Kenneth and Bradley Fishel of Renaissance Properties continue to lease space in a re-awakening New York City. With the assistance of the Cohen Team at Newmark, the Fishels have leased significant space across their portfolio.
