On the surface, it would appear everything is hunky-dory over at 250 Bowery. The building is pretty much complete, demand is high for the astronomically-expensive apartments, and Anthropologie is the high-profile anchor retail tenant. But it might be a minute before any launch happens.

Word on the street is that there’s some last-minute drama at the finish line. A source reveals that Anthropologie is presently renegotiating the lease because they’re allegedly “unhappy” with the some unspecified portion of the buildout. That would explain the lack of activity of late inside the gargantuan ground floor. Nevertheless, yesterday afternoon, workers finally unveiled the full rusty exterior and branded nameplate.
