In Style Salon shuttered its 250 East Houston headquarters back in December 2010. More than two years later, a new retail occupant is poised for an imminent takeover. One that might delight those living upstairs in Red Square. A new wine and liquor store.

The aptly-named East Houston Wine & Liquor announced itself last week with some new signage behind the security gate. Since the space was previously built for cutting hair and such, fresh DOB permits are now on file to “refurnish floor tiles and wall painting” and “install new prefabricated wooded shelves along both sides of walls.”

If this dated real estate listing over at JDF Realty holds true, the property at 250 East Houston fetched somewhere in the vicinity of $75 per square-foot.
