The owner of Subject LES on Suffolk Street is preparing to expand his nightlife holdings around the corner from the current digs. But technically housed in the same building.

Proprietor Matthew Rush is presently applying for a full liquor license at the embattled 269 East Houston Street, which has been unsuccessful in attracting anyone since the flood and failure of Local 269. Indeed, Rush is the sixth applicant to queue for the space since fall of 2012.

The untitled establishment will be a two-level hang, and will apparently continue the tradition of live music at this address (no more than eight times a month). Hours sought are 4am all days.

Here is a quick snapshot of the blueprint for the space.

In the meantime, 269 East Houston languishes on the open market. Massey Knakal is still repping the property, but removed price from its website. Its last ask was $9.95 million.
