Years of dormancy, and now, just like that, the CitizenM hotel project site on the Bowery is abuzz with activity. Switch flipped.

The mobile office unit for the Dutch-based hotel was installed Monday morning, abutting the new walkway created for the duration. Two days later, though, and the area is now dwarfed by ten-foot-high plywood fencing. Plus, the usual army of construction vehicles has already begun the process of earth moving.

Meanwhile, the M103 bus stop at Bowery and Delancey is in flux. Contractors onsite tell us that the stop will eventually be relocated, but that some drivers are stopping closer to the corner of Delancey for pick-up and drop-off. In the instance a new home is not secured, there will no stop between Grand and East Houston.

Upon its eventual debut, the CitzenM hotel will boast 300 keys spread between floors 2 to 17 (20 rooms per level). Amenities for guests include a gym, basement bar, and rooftop lounge/terrace on the 19th floor. Plans also call for the construction of a 3,383 square-foot public plaza.

It’s gonna be a long few years before this nineteen-story beast is completed.
