Annabelle Selldorf's Bowery Tower On the Rise

New, 4 comments

Since we last checked in with the mixed-use development at 347 Bowery, occupying a lot that was formerly home to a Salvation Army residence, the scaffolding had just gone up. But much has changed since then: The old building has come down, and the structure that will replace it—a 13-story tower designed by starchitect Annabelle Selldorf—is now rising on the site, with one story above ground, per EV Grieve.

As of right now, the plans for the site are the same as when YIMBY first reported on permits filed in 2014: It'll be mixed residential-commercial, with five three-bedroom homes (ranging from a massive 2,100 to 4,000 square feet), plus additional ground-floor retail space. And no clear renderings for the site have been released yet, save for the one above (which is less rendering, more illustration, from the DOB). But anything Selldorf does will likely be better than the original plans for a hotel there, which featured red tumor-like protrusions that would have lit up at night. No thanks.
