Introducing the Bowery Continental at 196 Bowery

Posted on: August 2nd, 2010 at 6:33 am by

At the beginning of this year, we followed the progress and completion of 196 Bowery, that new seven-story box of full-floor luxury rentals.  It’s taken some time, but a tipster just sent word that move-in time has arrived.  And with it, a name to match its high-end identity.  Behold, the Bowery Continental.

Of course, what shi shi development would be complete without its requisite ground-level gallery? Well, we also learned that the Charles Bank Gallery is coming soon.
