What About that 8-Story Corner Monstrosity Coming to Bowery and Broome?

With Emmut Properties headlong into construction activities at 138 Bowery, it’s time to revisit its second area holding, directly across the street.

Any day now, we can expect businesses at 151-153 Bowery (aka 331-337 Broome) to receive their marching orders. As in, imminent departure for demolition. The owner-developer is still angling to construct an enormous mixed-use complex at the southeast corner of Bowery and Broome Street.

While zoning restrictions (rather, the lack thereof) technically allow for more floor area here, this incoming development – described as “gorgeous” by Emmut – will reach eight stories. And much like its sibling across the boulevard (of gilded dreams), is a mix of condo and hotel.

Timetable for demolition/construction remains the same – beginning by year’s end (unlikely), with completion of construction in 2018. So far, there are still no permits listed on file with the Department of Buildings, for demolition or otherwise. Expect that to change soon.
