Posted November 30, 2017 at 5:00 am

Another year, another attempt to pitch the retail unit at 222 Bowery. More than two-and-a-half years after Green Depot departed the storied “Bunker” building, the former environmentally-concious hardware store remains a vacant shell of itself. At least two different brokerages tried to make a deal here, most recently RKF. However, it was under the tutelage […]

Posted October 25, 2016 at 9:43 am

Here we are again. A year-and-a-half after the Green Depot vacated 222 Bowery, the former environmentally-concious hardware store remains a decrepit dormancy. Just look inside.

Green Depot ‘Relocates’ from the Bowery After 6 Years; Starr Steakhouse Still Fighting to Open

Posted March 23, 2015 at 5:00 am

Upscale dining is one step closer to opening in the belly of the Bunker. After years on proverbial deathwatch, the Green Depot flagship at 222 Bowery last week folded up and vacated the premises. The ground-level showroom is now cleared of its contents, awaiting, by last estimation, a new steakhouse by Joe Carroll and Stephen Starr […]
