Over at “SoHo’s most impactful corner,” 606 Broadway gradually ascends skyward, blocking out what was once a vacant sliver of city-owned land. Two towers of the rising superstructure are also starting to obstruct the Hollister ad branding on the north face of 600 Broadway. Madison Capital, which purchased the 6,190 square-foot parcel from the city for […]

That new six-story commercial development on East Houston Street just claimed its first victim. The southeasterly entrance to the Broadway-Lafayette subway station is now closed for the duration. It won’t be reopening, presumably, until the project is complete in “mid-2018.” The rendering per owner-developer Madison Capital illustrates how the access point is incorporated into the overall […]

Sunday morning marked the five-year anniversary of Hollister’s controversial erasure of the iconic DKNY mural from the face of SoHo.

As of this morning, Hollister is now poised to officially brand its likeness onto SoHo. Taped borders are now in place on the brown building facade of its soon-to-be flagship store. Let’s just hope the painters will color inside the lines. Related Reading:DKNY Mural Gone [Bowery Boogie]

It’s a veritable changing of the guard down at the entrance to SoHo. As of this morning, the DKNY mural at the corner of Houston and Broadway is gone. Painted a shade of brown. Although, the former lettering is still somewhat visible.

As the future occupant of 600 Broadway (corner of Houston), Abercrombie & Fitch is currently seeking “cool, good-looking people” to represent the brand at its flagship store. The screening process must be pretty tough, especially since SoHo is just teeming with cool people. Get in line! We could definitely picture Derek Zoolander uttering these exact […]
