The CitizenM hotel superstructure has already reached the halfway point of its controversial ascension. Upon its eventual completion – originally slated for winter 2016 – this eyesore will sit nineteen stories above the Bowery and boast approximately 300 hotel rooms.
And until this point, there has been little to no community outreach from the developer, the hotel, or anyone else associated with the project. That all changes next week.
CitizenM just announced a neighborhood meeting in conjunction with Community Boards 2 and 3 (both straddle the Bowery), scheduled for June 22 at 6pm (Wednesday). Flyers currently litter the immediate vicinity of the 185 Bowery construction site to inform neighbors. In sum, “The meeting is to introduce the company to the neighborhood, give an overview of the hotel’s construction on the corner of Bowery and Delancey, and answer any questions from the community,” a public release notes.
Nice of them to finally address the Bowery community, more than five years after planting the flag.
