Houston and Bowery Mural Wall To Get Two-Story Neighbor

New, 1 comment

The empty lot once occupied by Billy's Antiques on the corner of Houston and Elizabeth Street is not long for this world. Bowery Boogie reports that scaffolding has appeared around the former outdoor antiques market at 76 East Houston Street that extends to the end of the block, eclipsing the Houston and Bowery mural wall. But fear not arts aficionados: renderings for the new two-story structure on the adjacent lot make sure to show that the mural wall will remain wholly intact. Filings with the Department of Buildings indicate that the new 2,928-square-foot structure will likely be a retail space of two stories with a rooftop. The architect of record for the neo-traditional building is Gary H. Silver. Bowery Boogie says the lot at 76 East Houston Street as well as the mural wall are owned by the estate of Tony Goldman.
