​The gentry of 199 Mott Street have arrived.

199 Mott Street offiicially disrobed a couple months ago, bringing its bullshit “new addition to old New York.” Yep, this place succeeded in its mission of attracting even more wealth to the neighborhood.

The new “boutique” development “blends romatic historical references with the most state of the art systems” in its eleven apartments. Ten of which have already been purchased, according to exclusive broker Corcoran. One reamins on the open market – a 2,907 square-foot, 3BR-3 bath for a slender $7.9 million.

As for the commercial level of 199 Mott Street, onetime Bowery showroom, Gallery 151, is on board. It opened an Annex in the north store last summer, but later moved the operation to the south space. Boutique newcomer Leyton Astor Co. will instead join the fray in this space sometime in the spring/early summer. The brand focuses on high quality wardrobe pieces for the modern metropolitan individual” (i.e. fashionista), yet barely maintains an online presence. The 2,225 square-foot brick-and-mortar will be a flagship upon open. For the time being, though, only a “help wanted” flyer sits in the window, alongside building permits.

The reveal arrives roughly five years after the project was first announced at 197-199 Mott. Alfa purchased the property a year earlier (2010) for $9 million. The one-story warehouse on this site fell victim. It had once served as home to the T-Bone Supermarket, but remained empty the previous quarter-century.
