Anthropologie to Open Boutique at 250 Bowery

Posted on: April 16th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Zach Vella, co-founder of VE Equities, is taking a victory lap after gushing to the Post the other day about the apparent early success of 250 Bowery. Of course, this was the long-stalled property that the firm snapped up last year at a bargain-bin price, and is flipping for multimillion dollar condos. The eight-story structure is topping off as we speak, climbing skyward at breakneck pace.

This sign says it all

The Real Deal penned a followup piece last week, and noted that a ground-level tenant has already signed a lease here. And what else to afford the rents but a friggin’ high-end fashion boutique?

Women’s apparel and accessory store Anthropologie is officially part of the equation, set to open its seventh Tri-State outpost here at 250 Bowery. Just a few doors down from another noob, Dagny + Barstow. Asking rents for this now-prime realty were not immediately available. You can bet it was a hefty sum, though. Nothing can stop this tidal wave of Bowery 2.0.

“They’re an incredibly strong retailer and a good fit for the building,” Vella said, saying the company didn’t want to go with a restaurant, which would have been typical on the Bowery.

Construction on the new condoplex is slated for completion later this summer. Shortly thereafter, certain doom.

    There is absolutely no chance the construction is completed by the end of this summer. I’d expect occupancy mid spring.
