In 1998, the Moinian Group converted the 400,000-square-foot commercial building that had been erected in 1931 at 90 John Street to one split almost evenly between apartments and offices. One of the original "Plug 'n' Go," state-sponsored redevelopment properties, 90 John was located in an area that was then being promoted as New York s "Silicon Valley." Despite the subsequent collapse of the Internet Bubble soon thereafter, the building's occupancy remained pretty strong. The 34-story building is distinguished by many setbacks and by some attracted plaques depicting a seahorse, a Viking galleon and a steamship. Avinash K. Malhotra was the architect for the residential conversion in 1998 that created 221 rental apartments. The building has a 24-hour concierge, a health club, a roof deck, valet services, and an entrance marquee beneath a large blue-glass screen. The building is known as The Renaissance and its addresses at 100 John Street, 90 John Street, 15 Platt Street and 20 Gold Street. Located in the insurance district of Lower Manhattan, it is close to the South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge and not far from public transportation. The building has a two-story limestone base capped by a pronounced bandcourse.
