Anthropologie Branding Arrives at 250 Bowery

Posted on: November 26th, 2012 at 6:47 am by

As the 250 Bowery condoplex takes the final few strides toward completion, its full impact on the Lower East Side is coming into focus. Indeed. In case the advent of more million-dollar gentrifier condos along the boulevard of broken gilded dreams wasn’t enough, the ground-level space is sure to tip the proverbial scale. Anthropologie, as previously reported, is well on the way to opening its sixth city store.

Just before Thanksgiving last week, what’s left of the stubborn scaffolding was wrested and carted away on flatbeds. Construction work on the first level began almost immediately with the installation of a rusty facade and requisite store branding. This is a quick peek behind the perimeter plywood still standing onsite.

From the look of things, this bastion of fashion could conceivably launch by year end. Though, the same can’t necessarily be said for the highly-demanded residential units above.  Elliman is the exclusive broker for the property, which sports 40,000 square-feet of overpriced one- and two-bedroom residences, plus a pair of duplex penthouses.

Clinton Street ‘Casita’ Tree Tunnel Uprooted for Good

The arboreal attraction (and known rat hangout) at the southeast corner of Clinton and Stanton Streets is officially kaput. That’s right, no more tree tunnel.

Delancey Street Gets its First LinkNYC Kiosk

Yesterday afternoon, the city unveiled the first LinkNYC pornhub kiosk for Delancey Street. It’s situated just east of the Bowery, where these things are multiplying faster than gizmo in a swimming pool. The 9-foot-6-inch unit is not yet active, though. LinkNYC stations have been criticized pretty much from the get-go. In league with the soulless […]

CitizenM Changes Traffic Pattern on the Bowery without Community Consultation, Neighbors Allege

Bowery neighbors were surprised to learn on Wednesday afternoon that the CitizenM hotel at 189 Bowery had completely altered the traffic pattern outside the construction site. A sneak attack to accommodate the arrival of a crane for the 19-story construction. The only warning to the area at large was green signs affixed to the trees […]

Grand Street can finally breathe after more than five years of roadwork related to a trunk water main.

Pavement was resurfaced and striped over the last month. The only real remnant of […]
