Last week, the foodie world was incensed by the announcement that the Lower East Side's beloved progressive eatery WD-50 would be closing its doors come November. The statement wasn't a complete surprise, because renderings have already surfaced for a seven-story Isaac & Stern building that may come to occupy the site of 50-62 Clinton Street, a strip of single-story buildings including the restaurant. New news, however, comes by way of Bowery Boogie, who says that Icon Realty enlisted the services of Massey Knakal to shop out the "development site" that they're listing without a price tag and accepting offers on. Massey Knakal's listing says the site "can be delivered vacant." The site between Rivington and Stanton streets is zoned to accommodate residential and mixed-use development. Isaac and Stern's plan exam for the site is still pending approval.
