The LIST: Cortney and Bob Novogratz
Seven kids and two cool parents will be the focus of a new TV show. BRAVO announces the new series Design SIXX. Self-taught designers and developers Cortney and Bob Novogratz have created a lucrative business transforming dilapidated buildings into upscale residences. Having refurbished or built from scratch more than 10 homes, the Novogratzes have a history of turning nothing into something, and creating real estate value where little existed before. Not to mention, they wear all the hats from general contractors to interior designers.
Their new book Downtown Chic includes the completion of their latest project—a 6 six-story glass residence facing the Hudson River. Downtown Chic, published by Rizzoli, is set to be released May 2009. You can read my full profile with Bob and Cortney published this past January.
