Plans Filed for New 8-Story Condo Building at 260 Bowery
Last Tuesday, the same day that JR, together with the International Center of Photography, unrolled a new mural on 260 Bowery, the building owner-developer officially filed plans for its future. Namely, luxury condos.
As previously reported, Premier Equities purchased 260 Bowery in November for $10 million, shortly after word leaked of the forthcoming eight-story replacement. Well, it took several months, but the paperwork was filed with the Department of Buildings last week. According to the pending plans, there are four full-floor apartments capped by a duplex penthouse and rooftop recreation area, all divided across 14,611 square-feet of space; there is also 5,100 square-feet of retail to occupy the ground, cellar, and second floors.
Demolition permits were already approved back in July, so this is gonna happen real soon.
Morris Adjmi Architects is the designer of record on the high-end project.
As for the black-and-white wheat-paste on the facade of 260 Bowery, French street artist JR chose a classic image from photographer Robert Capa, snapped during World War II.
260 Bowery previously housed Dixon Place (now on Chrystie Street) and a Chinese kitchen supply company.
