I think more research needs to be done from what I am getting  from this.

More and useful information on Vessel from Neil Rubler. Doesn’t look so nefarious to me, but then I’ve only begun to look. Perhaps hold fire on Vessel and NWCOG until we know more.

Ok I have located this "Vessel." 
The owner (CEO Neil Rubler) sounds dodgy.  Needs more research but there appear to be some tid bits of red flags such as:

"Jared Kushner ordered Observer staff to remove posts about Neil Rubler,"

Neil L. Rubler is the founder, president, and chief executive officer of Candlebrook Properties, LLC, formerly known as Vantage Properties, a New York City-based real estate investment firm that specializes in buying run-down rental buildings, renovating them, and renting them out at higher rates.

Can't find "Vessel" on a Google search.....

Does it have a more formal name?

Vessel is a group of altruistic people with expertise in building energy efficient, attainable homes.  I think most people use the word attainable to show that we are trying to bring in housing for working people, younger people and downsizing people.  Most people associate affordable with Section 8 housing, which is not the case here.
