We haven't been paying much attention to 2 Allen Street, where an 1887 building was demolished in 2009 to make way for something new. But Bowery Boogie has, and the time for an update is now. Earlier permits called for a commercial and community facility at the site, but according to Bowery Boogie, what's actually coming is a high-end residential development set to be completed a year from now. The architect is apparently Jung Wor Chin, who brought us the mysterious 55 Hester Street, next to the former Gertel's Bakery. So this should be interesting.
