The old-timer at 210 Bowery – once a 1930s-era flophouse called the Monroe Hotel – will see its glitzy makeover in the coming years. As previously reported, Acadia Realty Trust purchased the property two years ago for $7.5 million, and will sink an additional $3.8 million into four additional floors of residential living. Yep, the building as we know it won’t be around for much longer.

Workers were outside 210 Bowery yesterday afternoon with the hammer guns and plywood to assemble the sidewalk shed. Efforts to gut the building are ongoing.

Upon job completion in March 2016 (approximate), the new construction will boast seven full-floor units comprising 12,824 square-feet of floor area; the single commercial space is slated for 1,989 square-feet. Amenities include roof deck, basement storage, and seven bicycle spaces, according to documents on file with the Department of Buildings.

And it’ll look something like this…

The Markell-owned restaurant supplier Soho Sammy reportedly triple net-leased the ground level of 201 Bowery through the end of December. It consolidated operations next door in the building it owns – 212 Bowery.
