Name: CJ & Renee Follini
Location: SoHo — NYC
Years lived in: 3

CJ Follini and his wife, Renee, graciously invited us to tour their bright, Soho apartment shortly before moving uptown. CJ and Renee took a leap of faith in the purchase of the apartment three years ago: it was bought as part of a user deal from a developer who put a consortium of artists and filmmakers together to purchase the building. The catch? While the building had basic infrastructure, each space was essentially sold "as is". CJ and Renee's space had a large hole in the floor where an internal stair once connected it to the floor below and the space was dark and gloomy due to the single exposure on a long, narrow space.
