3 Buildings on the ‘Tidal Wave that is the Bowery’ Hit the Market for $30M

Last modified November 15, 2016 at 11:20 am

Grab a life jacket and brace yourselves for the cresting tidal wave. Everywhere you look on the Bowery it’s development… When Oggi Lighting shut its lights for the last time back in April, we had a premonition that something bad would happen here. After all, 162-166 Bowery is a low-rise strip of mixed-use buildings with […]

Posted November 2, 2016 at 5:00 am

It’s not just traffic safety that neighbors of the CitizenM Hotel on the Bowery are worried about. How about the construction equipment and the potential for disaster. One week after the hotel company surreptitiously netted city approval to alter the intersection of Bowery and Delancey, the towering crane is assembled, albeit on its side, awaiting […]

Luxury 210 Bowery Ascends to Summit, Despite Past Stability Concerns

Posted November 1, 2016 at 5:09 am

It’s been over a year – if you can believe it – since 210 Bowery succumbed to stability issues. Recall that a brick wall in the basement collapsed and injured two contractors digging for an elevator shaft. No one was taking any chances on safety that day, especially in the wake of the 2nd Avenue […]

CitizenM Erects Towering Crane on the Bowery, Further Aggravating the Traffic Situation

Posted October 31, 2016 at 5:00 am

It’s a total clusterfuck down at Bowery and Delancey, where an enormous tower crane was erected this weekend. See for yourself. This is the latest move by the incoming, 300-key CitizenM Hotel that negatively impacts the neighborhood. By altering the pattern at this traffic choke point, the CitizenM hotel really screwed the pooch, exacerbating an already […]

Posted October 25, 2016 at 9:43 am

Here we are again. A year-and-a-half after the Green Depot vacated 222 Bowery, the former environmentally-concious hardware store remains a decrepit dormancy. Just look inside. There is now a collection of toilet bowls, random bags of concrete, and other construction sundries. But nothing is happening. Except that a new brokerage is trying again to sell […]
