Here’s the First Look at the 11-Story Rebirth of 139 Bowery
There is nothing left of 139-141 Bowery. Over the course of the last several months, the side-by-side buildings experienced a slow death at the hands of a wrecking crew. (Non-union scabs, apparently, as the giant inflatable rats and pigs previously made an appearance.)
But this newfound open-air will soon yield more residential mass. Below is the first rendering of the (bland) glass-box project, buried in the depths of their website.
As reported, the tax lots of 139-141 Bowery were previously combined with the intention of dropping an eleven-story replacement building stocked with both commercial and residential space.
It was summer 2014 when developer Global Joint Venture first filed paperwork to construct this mixed-use building at 139-141 Bowery. Current revised filings indicate that the eleven-story mixed-use project will carry nineteen residential units across 21,224 square-feet. Also included in the plan are roof terraces for tenants, a potential ambulatory health care center, bike room, gym, commercial office space, and ground floor retail.
Raymond Chan Architect is tasked with the design, which includes a podium setback on the sixth floor.
