Greenwich Village icon Bowlmor Lanes closed its doors more than a year and a half ago, and the hulking warehouse it once occupied is now gone, too. EV Grieve reports that the demolition of the businesses on the west side of University Place, including Bowlmor's former HQ, is completed, clearing a path for Billy Macklowe's luxury condos.
To recap, Macklowe (the son of megadeveloper Harry) acquired the building in 2012, and revealed his plans to turn it into a 23-story condo building soon thereafter. Though many details on the conversion haven't been revealed, we do know that it'll be a 280-foot tower with 56 units that will be measure than 2,000 square feet apiece. It'll also have bike parking, a ground-floor community facility, a resident lounge and terrace, a parking garage, and ground floor retail.
Bowlmor had occupied the space for more than 70 years before closing its doors in 2014.
