Who will be the next tenant for the former CBGB Gallery?

As Racked reported, the Morrison Hotel on the Bowery -- former site of the CBGB Gallery -- is moving...



...and the "for lease" signs are up now...



Have you read the listing for the property?

It's good. Real good.

With 25 feet of frontage and up to 8,800 square feet of retail space available, 313-315 Bowery offers a unique opportunity to be a part of the resurgent development in the Bowery neighborhood. The hotel, residential and retail developments surrounding the old CBGB space provide extraordinary exposure for this opportunity in one of the city’s distinctive cultural landmarks.

Features
• 25 feet of frontage on Bowery
2 blocks away from Manhattan’s largest Whole Foods Market
Former location of the world renowned CBGB
• Adjacent to over 700 new luxury rental units in AvalonBay Development
• Next to highly successful John Varvatos 315 Bowery boutique, opened Spring 2008

I wonder what sort of rent MHG has been paying. It must have been enormous.

I've always been curious how "highly successful" that John Varvatos is in this location.

Varvatos IS highly successful...at being an over-priced doucherey for trust fund mall punks.

@NYCD.

I set you up for that one!

If you walk in there, instead of asking you if they can help you, the sales staff actually run away from you! They are very dour (I guess that's a selling technique?) and disinterested. Like a hipster vibe gone bad.
