A representative for Aby Rosen's RFR Realty has reached out to squash rumors that 190 Bowery is for sale. Basically, the Cushman & Wakefield listing a tipster pointed out yesterday is old news and will be removed from Cushman's site. As per the representative, "The listing is not current. The property is not for sale. The tenant build-out is in process and they are looking forward to occupying the building. There is robust leasing interest and activity on the remaining space." So it sounds like Rosen's holding on to the old Germania Bank Building on the corner of Bowery and Spring and proceeding with business as usual, which means welcoming the consortium of companies helmed by Matthew Moneypenny that will occupy the building's floors two through six while finding a tenant for the "prime retail" space on the ground floor.
On the upside of this whirlwind, the on-going debate over whether the building will keep its beloved exterior graffiti doesn't have to return to square one.
