The massive 11-building Bowery portfolio snatched up for $62 million over the summer claimed its first commercial victim. Not surprisingly, it’s a longtime restaurant supply company.

Hawaii Restaurant Equipment officially threw in the towel. Now the property sits on the open market, while the year-old gate mural of the Attias clan (the owners) remains behind as a memorial to the fallen.

RKF is brokering 262 Bowery, further tightening its grip on the storefront inventory of the Bowery. According to the recently-published real estate listing [PDF], there’s a total of 6,017 usable square-feet split between basement and ground level.

And as with all their listings, no renter price tag is provided. However, it does further validate our exclusive intel on the Ace Hotel going up across the Bowery…

What can we likely expect here, you ask? Well, just look around to the immediate neighbors to gauge. Our guess is more nightlife.
