Green Depot’s Bowery Bunker for Rent

Posted on: July 20th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

The historic Bunker on the Bowery might soon lose its anchor ground-level tenant. Subtle leasing signage arrived outside the storefront of 222 Bowery earlier this week, raising red flags and evoking memories here at Boogie HQ. After all, announcing the arrival of Green Depot was one of the first stories to appear on this website almost four years ago to the day.

Teaser signage for Green Depot first appeared at Chairs and Stools Etc. way back in August 2008. However, the environmentally-conscious materials and products supplier wouldn’t in fact open until later that fall. And now here we are, four years later, with Sinvin Real Estate ready to rent the “first LEED Platinum retail space in New York State” to someone new.

Asking price for the 8,820-square-foot space (ground + cellar) is not listed in the accompanying literature, but possession will be “arranged.” Main selling point is the unbelievable change that’s transpired here recently. Indeed the map illustrates it pretty clearly, showing all the “attractive” establishments that essentially raise the value of the investment (i.e. Bowery Diner, Pulino’s, the future Paulaner Brauhaus etc.).

Pray it doesn’t become another fuckin’ 7-Eleven.
