Word of the imminent demise of Greenwich Village's iconic Bowlmor Lanes arrived in early 2014, when EV Grieve reported that site owner Billy Macklowewhose father is none other than Harry Macklowe of 432 Park Avenue famewanted to slap a condo tower up on the site. Details of the new development have been few and far between in the meantime, but 6sqft has gleaned a few primary renderings of the project that seem to confirm 1) that it's actually happening, and 2) that it will be amongst the tallest residential buildings in the neighborhood. According to 6sqft, the building will rise 23 stories to stand a "modest" 280 feet, and will contain
52 [Update: 56] apartments for NYU students condos averaging more than 2,000 square feet apiece.
Plans filed with the Department of Buildings list SLCE as the Architect of Record, but a design architect has yet to be pegged, at least publicly, for the project. The building, which consumes a majority of the western side of the block between East 12th and East 13th streets, will have bike parking, a ground-floor community facility, a resident lounge and terrace, a parking garage, and ground floor retail.
Bowlmor Lanes has occupied part of the former parking garage for 76 years, making it one of the oldest continually operational bowling alleys on the East Coast.
