Preview of Karl Fischer’s 263 Bowery
Finally, some inside information on the new Karl Fischer condo development at 263 Bowery. It’s been over a month since the unsightly exoskeleton was removed. Signs in the second floor windows continue to advertise the ground-level lease and the exclusive broker for the property. That honor is bestowed upon Prudential Douglas Elliman.
Even though the website mentioned on the banner has been in a “coming soon” status for quite some time, StreetEasy now has the goods. No listings just yet, but there are some early renderings of the full-floor 2-BR apartments for sale. There are four total units in the building, plus the four levels of commercials space down below.
Here is the official description. Note that the copy only mentions new developments on the Bowery when referring to “the very best that downtown has to offer.”
Award winning architect Karl Fisher combined with Richardson Sadeki’s minimalistic vision provides the perfect combination of form and functionality, from the flowing layouts with unique concrete floors, to the sophisticated sleek finishes. Each of our 2 bed/2 bath residences offers floor-thru keyed elevator living with private outdoor space overlooking Sarah Roosevelt Park and compelling city views.
• Keyed elevator opening directly to residences
• Boutique building with only 1 floor-thru apartment on each floor
• Storage space for each apartment
• Common roof deck
• The building is eligible for 421(a) tax abatement for 10 years.
With its desirable location 263 Bowery has the very best of what downtown has to offer from the New Museum to the incredible new Sperone Westwater gallery and trendy Keith McNally’s new restaurant Pulino’s.
