The future of 347 Bowery (sorta!) revealed


[EVG photo from January]

The Salvation Army's former East Village Residence on the Bowery at East Third Street is now an empty lot … killing time until the work begins on a 13-story, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development.

Here's a sketch of the proposed building for 347 Bowery that we spotted at the owner Urban Muse's website back last March...



There are now some equally minimalist renderings up on the plywood …





The building sure looks taller than 13 stories here. However, according to the Department of Buildings, the city approved the permits for the 13-story building last month.

Annabelle Selldorf, who designed the neighboring 10 Bond Street, is listed as the architect of record.

Something about those renderings remind me of a giant light switch getting ready to be turned off. It's certainly NOT the genius switch!

Folks in the neighboring tower better dump their places before their southern exposure gets bricked up.

Is that building leaning by design? In the rendering it looks like it's had one-too-many Cosmos and is getting ready to tip into the gutter.

@Goggla: I feel a pretty strong 'schadenfreude'taking hold of me.
