Bowery Building Razed for New Office Development
The old Bowery tenement that previously housed a restaurant supply company is coming down. In its place, a new five-story office building.
Passing by 216 Bowery this week, we spotted half the structure eliminated behind a Black death shroud.
Approved permits on file with Department of Buildings indicate that the stout brick tenement at 216 Bowery is to remain – albeit unrecognizable – and sprout a two-floor tumor with snazzy roof deck. Plans previously submitted to the city show a five-story building with ground-level retail and four floors of office space (totaling 5,700 square-feet).
Designed by David Grider Architect, the newcomer will look something like the below rendering when complete.
The Balter supply business (located across the street) owned 216 Bowery for thirty-six years before selling to L3 Capital in March 2016 for $13 million.
