260 Bowery Takes its Place on Luxury Row

Posted on: June 12th, 2019 at 5:05 am by

The newest abode for the one-percent takes its place on the Bowery. That of 260 Bowery.

The condo project topped out last fall, but is now really taking shape. Notably, the six-by-six window grid that seems to complement the luxury condoplex next door at 250 Bowery.

This latest entrant is more than four years in the making. As previously reported, Premier Equities purchased 260 Bowery in November 2015 for $10 million. The old building, which once housed Dixon Place (now on Chrystie Street), fell a few months later.

The sliver residence contains four full-floor apartments capped by a duplex penthouse and rooftop recreation area, all divided across 14,611 square-feet of space; there is also 4,898 square-feet of retail to occupy the ground, cellar, and second floors.
