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.
