International Center of Photography Begins Build-Out at New 250 Bowery HQ

Posted December 8, 2015 at 9:33 am

​The International Center of Photography is finally on the offensive with its new Bowery location. It was back in early January 2015 when we first broke news that the museum was relocating from Sixth Avenue. Three months later, the organization purchased the ground floor of 250 Bowery for $23.5 million. Aside from teaser signage in […]

​For the International Center of Photography, delays have plagued the southward move to the Bowery. But change is afoot. That vintage-looking window dressing at 250 Bowery was swapped yesterday afternoon, revealing a new timeline and marketing plan. Don’t expect progress any time soon. These new treatments illustrate how the institution is now relying on the […]

260 Bowery will be Razed for 8-Story Condo Building

Posted September 29, 2015 at 5:10 am

Following in the footsteps of its neighbor, the squat commercial structure at 260 Bowery is ready for upper crust life. Eight stories of luxury, in fact. Demolition permits were filed two months ago for 260 Bowery, so it’s only a matter of time. From what we understand, property owner Esther Yip (aka Lyco Investment Corp.) […]

250 Bowery Embraces the Street for Its New Ground Level Leasing Signage

Posted November 12, 2013 at 6:04 am

RKF is certainly trying its darndest to lease out the enormous ground level of 250 Bowery, currently owned by Tri Star Capital’s David Edelstein. Simple signs just won’t do. So the latest tactic is resorting to an embrace of street culture to sell the space. Over the weekend, the brokerage pasted up this vinyl banner […]

250 Bowery: First Tenants Arrive and Near Break-In

Posted October 4, 2013 at 6:06 am

250 Bowery is now occupied. Partially, at least. The first tenants are beginning to trickle into the building, a high-profile residential project that was more than seven years in the making. Also, a Boogie tipster purports that three hooligans were nearly arrested (but let go) for attempting to break into 250 Bowery on Wednesday evening. […]

David Edelstein Buys 250 Bowery Retail Condo for $15.75M

Posted August 12, 2013 at 6:13 am

Anthropologie canceling its store at 250 Bowery was certainly a surprise in these parts. Due to alleged disapproval of the buildout, the fashionista brand suddenly backed out in June, rendering the branded rusty facade obsolete. But we all know another of its ilk can’t be too far behind. Anyway, the news crossing our desk this […]
