The neighborhood thoroughly mourned 35 Cooper Square, demolished last year at age 186. And then the neighbors waited to see what developer Arun Bhatia would bring to the lot after a rodent intermission. EV Grieve has the answer: dorms. Bhatia pre-filed DOB paperwork today, and the filing calls for a 9-story building with 43 dorm rooms and ground-floor retail. The architect of record is Debra Kossar. As EV Grieve notes, NYU and Cooper Union are both likely candidates to take the rooms, but there's no official word. Seen renderings or details? Tell us!
