Leasing banners. A sight not seen at 76 East Houston in recent memory. But so it goes.

The new two-story commercial structure at the northeast corner of Elizabeth Street is nowhere near completion. In fact, the Goldman Properties project site – formerly Billy’s Antiques – has been pretty quiet in recent weeks. Not too much in the way of progress, most likely due to Certificate of Occupancy issues here and the dispute over the property line encroachment we exposed last month.

Nevertheless, the Sinvin brokerage is already pimping the opportunity (“freestanding retail building for lease”) with a wrap-job on the sidewalk bridge, and promises a spring 2015 completion. With updated renderings of the structure and the adjacent graffiti wall.

Following the lead to the main website, we’re greeted with the obligatory broker babble about this structure being “at the four corners of downtown.” What the fuck does that mean?

Rent is only given “upon request.” Here are the rest of the pertinents…

  • New full building identity with two floors and expansive roof deck. 775 square-feet on the ground floor, 680 square-feet on the second floor, and 803 square-feet on said rooftop.
  • At the center of 4 bustling neighborhoods.
  • Adjacent to famous Bowery Wall.
  • Surrounded by edgy apparel, chic restaurants, cultural landmarks, and residential anchors.
  • Estimated time of completion in Spring 2015.
