In a development that couldn't have possibly been predicted by anyone in the year 2014, a Village icon is being torn down and replaced by luxury condos. Although most locals probably have something of a love-hate relationship with the expensive (but fun! but expensive!) Bowlmor Lanes at 110 University Place, they will almost certainly think more fondly of the bowling alley now that word is getting out that new owner Billy Macklowe has plans to tear it down this summer and begin work on a brand new building. Macklowe acquired 110 University Place, which also houses a parking garage, in 2012. Bowlmor has operated in the space since 1938 and is, or will have been, the longest continuously running bowling alley on the East Coast, according to its website.
