‘Supreme’ Takes Over Germania Bank Building on the Bowery

Supreme is now slinging skate fashion on the Bowery.

The popular urban brand is temporarily holed up at the Germania Bank Building while its Lafayette Street flagship is upgraded. The move transpired within the last couple weeks, but the store officially reopens on the Bowery today.

Supreme announced the news on its Instagram feed yesterday evening.

As previously reported, Supreme is expected to remain at 190 Bowery for several months until “mid-2019.”

Real estate mogul Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty purchased the landmark Germania Bank Building from photographer Jay Maisel four years ago for $55 million. The longtime graffiti target has been home to the Totokaelo “jumbo pop-up” on the ground level the last year, and the Great Bowery – a consortium of creative agencies – on the upper levels.
