B&O Standard In Condos

New York — Bang & Olufsen products will be available as standard amenity for the first time in a residential development when an upscale condo project opens in New York City's West SoHo area next year.

The 12-story Renwick condominium will include B&O audio and video equipment in the price of all 44 units. The products include the new BeoVision 8 32-inch LCD TV, BeoSound 4 wall-mountable compact stereo system and companion BeoLab 4000 compact speakers. The condos are also prewired for additional B&O multiroom audio systems and come with a standard home-automation system with touch panel.

B&O markets directly to home builders and contracts with local custom installers to install the products.

The Renwick's exterior is all glass, reflecting what B&O called "the same clean-lined, minimalist aesthetic" of B&O products. Renwick units range from 750 square feet to 2,000 square feet.
