20-22 w. 10th Street was originally developed as the Renwick Terrace Townhouses intended for the New York City elite of the mid 19th century. The block is one of the only fully intact tree lined mid 19th century blocks in all of Manhattan making the real estate so sought after here agents refer to it as the Gold Coast. The building features massive skylights soaring to the top of its twenty -foot ceilings in the penthouse apartments, an extremely rare feature for buildings of its period. Alfa Development brought a full renovation program to most of the buildings apartments as well as updating the buildings mechanical systems and restoring the original facade. Original details combined with kitchen and bathroom full renovations in most of the building’s apartments show an antiqued aesthetic with contemporary luxuries. Exposed brick mantles throughout and bedrooms overlooking a quiet and bright Victorian courtyard continue to make the building highly popular. The historic Renwick Terrace Townhouses also sit in between the Jefferson Market Library & The Bigelow Pharmacy historic landmarks and is directly adjacent to the birthplace of Emma Lazarus.
