Hecho en Dumbo is Endangered as its Bowery Condo Space Hits Market for $6.25M

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 at 5:08 am by

It would appear that the proverbial rug is being pulled from under Hecho en Dumbo on the Bowery. The condo unit it leases, located at 354 Bowery, just hit the open market for $6.25 million.

Cushman & Wakefield is the exclusive broker, and listed the property this week. According to the broker-babble, the “fully vented turn-key restaurant space will be delivered vacant.” Emphasis on the “will be.”

The space is located on a prime part of the Bowery across the street from Gemma at the Bowery Hotel, Phebe’s, and Urban Muse’s new condo development at 347 Bowery anchored by an 8,000 SF retail space. Other highly trafficked neighboring tenants include B Bar, The Bowery Market, The Wren, 306 Bowery Bar, and Bar Primi. The offering features 1,940 SF on the ground floor (12′ ceilings), a 1,940 SF lower level (9′ ceilings), and a 1,940 SF sub-basement (9′ ceilings) for a total of 5,820 SF.

The fully vented turn-key restaurant space will be delivered vacant and features a prep kitchen in the basement and legal seating capacity for 74 patrons. It should also be noted that the current tenant has a liquor license to serve until 4:00am.

What started as a pop-up endeavor, Hecho en Dumbo opened this brick-and-mortar Mexican restaurant on the Bowery in 2010. It replaced the beloved (second incarnation of) Marion’s Continental which closed in August 2008. That venue held court at 354 Bowery for eighteen years before selling off the business.
