Another Bowery building is up for grabs, awaiting certain demolition and redevelopment. The three-story commercial warehouse at 180 Bowery – currently home to Daroma Restaurant Equipment – just hit the market last week as a “development/conversion” opportunity for real estate speculators. Price sought for the property is listed at $21.5 million, double the amount paid […]

As One Bowery Restaurant Supply Business Goes Bust, Another Takes Over

Posted July 28, 2017 at 5:08 am

AAA Quality Restaurant Supply – a well-known equipment supplier at 272 Bowery – went out of business at the end of last year. The three-and-a-half-year-old Sunrise Rainbow Kitchen Supply, located two doors away at 276 Bowery since 2013, recently signed the lease and has taken over (and dropped the Sunrise). This small section of the Bowery […]

Another Bowery Restaurant Supply Company Packs it in

Posted June 29, 2016 at 5:09 am

Seven years after its arrival, the restaurant supply company at 202 Bowery is now gone. Amazing Value Restaurant Equipment, as the business is aptly entitled, fled the gold coast last week. We’re told that the operation relocated to Brooklyn. A leasing sign in the window points to Jan Sasson’s brokerage handling the store now. Word […]

On Stellar Rays Annexes Former Restaurant Supply Shop at 213 Bowery

Posted February 12, 2016 at 5:16 am

​Regent Restaurant Supply relocated from its longtime Bowery headquarters just before the new year. In business since the mid-1990s, the ground-level warehouse operated at 213 for more than a dozen years. Well, no sooner did they depart than drilling began inside the store. With good reason. The eight-year-old gallery occupying its rear (i.e. 1 Rivington) […]

Posted June 4, 2015 at 5:17 am

The small colony of restaurant supply businesses on the Bowery is down another. The Soho Sammy supply company at 212 Bowery, which just consolidated its footprint earlier this year, is not long for the world. Its three-decade tenure comes at the expense of the Chelsea art scene.

New 8-Story Residential Building Planned for 210 Bowery

Posted January 14, 2015 at 5:00 am

It’s been a minute before someone knocked down a Bowery building. Time has come for 210 Bowery. Ready the wrecking ball… Acadia Realty Trust snapped up 210 Bowery two years ago for $7.5 million, but only now are we seeing their intentions. This is Bowery 2.0, after all, and its architectural stock is apparently not […]

JFK Restaurant Supply Moving Down the Block to 55 Canal Street

Posted February 19, 2014 at 6:00 am

When 55 Canal Street went on the open market in March 2012, the ground level anchor – Kinco Plumbing Supply – unsurprisingly moved away. The building later sold for $4.9 million. In the interim time period, the owners completely upscaled the exterior, installing a new glass-paneled facade, revamping the store itself, and giving the brickwork a […]

‘Chair-Up’ Restaurant Supply Space on the Bowery is Now for Rent

Posted December 30, 2013 at 6:08 am

219-221 Bowery is but one property in a portfolio of eleven Bowery buildings that sold for an astonishing $62 million last June. At the time, we knew the transaction pretty much spelled curtains for 15-year-old Chair-Up. With Milestone Equities as the new boss (they own the Dr. Jay’s streetwear empire), there was no way in […]

Posted July 27, 2012 at 6:28 am

As the smog-stained blue awning continues its downward spiral of deterioration, the Hawaii Restaurant Equipment at 262 Bowery decided to add a bit of flair with this gate mural. After all, the practice is so “in” right now.
