Pour one out for Mars Bar. The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation bog reports that the building's demolition permit has been approved. The plan for the site, if developer BFC Partners gets approval, is for a 12-story tower (above right) with a mix of market-rate housing and units for low-income tenants. Mars Bar plans to reopen when the construction finishes up, which should be in about two years.
