Skatewear Brand ‘Supreme’ Heads to 190 Bowery
Supreme is reportedly coming to the Lower East Side, albeit on a temporary basis.
The pioneering skatewear brand is apparently negotiating a lease for retail space at the Germania Bank Building on the Bowery.
Per Crain’s Business, which first reported the news yesterday, the lease would be temporary while the twenty-four-year-old Lafayette Street headquarters undergoes renovations. Supreme will likely stay aboard here until middle of 2019.
So, definitely expected frequent queues outside 190 Bowery for the various product releases.
Real estate mogul Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty purchased the landmark Germania Bank Building from photographer Jay Maisel more than three years ago for $55 million. The longtime graffiti target has been home to the Totokaelo “jumbo pop-up” on the ground level and the Great Bowery – a consortium of creative agencies – on the upper levels.
