245 Bowery Restaurant Gains Sidewalk Shed
245 Bowery is now sporting some new skin at the corner of Prince street. For the last couple days, a team of tool-wielders have been building a pair of new sidewalk sheds. Now work can continue unabated behind closed doors.
Time to say goodbye to the current facade as we know it, including the “Auctioneers and Appraisers” sign. Upon completion, the updated exterior will boast glassed-in archways. And all of this happening right below the Sunshine Hotel annex.
As previously reported, the duo behind Alta – Christopher Chesnutt and Ewa Olsen – is planning a new tapas-style restaurant here tentatively called “S.R.O.” Community Board 3 has already approved their application for a full liquor license, but has expressed disdain for the working name.
