Anthropologie to Open Boutique at 250 Bowery

Posted on: April 16th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Zach Vella, co-founder of VE Equities, is taking a victory lap after gushing to the Post the other day about the apparent early success of 250 Bowery. Of course, this was the long-stalled property that the firm snapped up last year at a bargain-bin price, and is flipping for multimillion dollar condos. The eight-story structure is topping off as we speak, climbing skyward at breakneck pace.

This sign says it all

The Real Deal penned a followup piece last week, and noted that a ground-level tenant has already signed a lease here. And what else to afford the rents but a friggin’ high-end fashion boutique?

Women’s apparel and accessory store Anthropologie is officially part of the equation, set to open its seventh Tri-State outpost here at 250 Bowery. Just a few doors down from another noob, Dagny + Barstow. Asking rents for this now-prime realty were not immediately available. You can bet it was a hefty sum, though. Nothing can stop this tidal wave of Bowery 2.0.

“They’re an incredibly strong retailer and a good fit for the building,” Vella said, saying the company didn’t want to go with a restaurant, which would have been typical on the Bowery.

Construction on the new condoplex is slated for completion later this summer. Shortly thereafter, certain doom.
