Demolition Permits Filed for Entire Bowery Corner Ahead of Marriott’s ‘Moxy’

Bowery and Broome in 2016

The southeast corner of Bowery and Broome is ready for razing. Demolition permits were filed with the city two weeks ago ahead of a multimillion-dollar conversion to a new Marriott hotel.

Former owner Emmut Properties sold its stake in 151 Bowery (aka 331-337 Broome) this past August to developer Lightstone Group. The seller had previously detailed a development plan for 151 Bowery on its website that never came to fruition. Instead, three months post-sale, the demolition permit is now in place to knock down the three-story structure.

In its place will rise another Marriott Moxy hotel – the imprint marketed toward millennials – which is the second such lodge below 14th Street. (Marriott and Lightstone already demolished an historic row of structures on East 11th Street for the other Moxy.)

Meanwhile, composition of the new building is still a mystery. Plans for the Lighting District hotel itself are not yet in the hands of the Department of Buildings.

We’ll keep you posted.
