Let's take a look at 347 Bowery, now and in the future



At last look in early September, the first floor was just visible at 347 Bowery, where a view-blocking (if you live right next door at 52E4), 13-story, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development is rising.

Now it looks to be past the halfway mark at 7 (or 8?) floors here at East Third Street ...



Developer Urban Muse has designs on five 3-bedroom homes ranging from 2,100 to 4,000 square feet, two 2,000-square-foot commercial units and one 6,800-square-foot retail unit.

Annabelle Selldorf, who designed the swanko 10 Bond Street, is listed as the architect of record. Here's a rendering for the building that we spotted on her firm's website (when you click on the image for more info there, you get a "page not found" message)...



Oh, balconies! Anyway, thoughts on the new building?

Expect something else new right here some day. As previously noted, the lot adjacent to 347 Bowery at 1-3 E. Third St. is also for sale as a development site.

Previously on EV Grieve:
The Salvation Army's former East Village Residence will be demolished on the Bowery

Looks like 347 Bowery will be home to a 13-floor mixed-use residential development

The future of 347 Bowery (sorta!) revealed

That's a lot of money to be able to look directly into the window of a neighboring building.

I only see people use these balconies as storage spaces. Another ugly mid-western concept of NYC.

This corner is looking like a real mess with staggered towers competing for light and views. Meanwhile we get to see what looks like giant boxes placed randomly near a street corner. Is there anyone in charge of NYC urban planning or did Bloomberg close that office?

Aside from all the bitching, I'd live there.

With the added convenience of a crack-addled 7-11 right outside. (Unintentionally obscured in their rendering by noxexistant trees.) Now that's luxury!

These buildings exit for investment not for their architectural integrity. Looks like Miami via Akron. But no matter what, the apts will sell and sell quickly.

We might all be too poor to live here but at least we got better taste than those that will.

The first two apartments in Greenwich Lane, the condos the replaced St Vincent's in the West Village, were just sold for over $16 and $19 million. How long before we find out this is all being fueled by drug money?

Balconies are usually wasted space and resources in Manhattan. Nobody uses them. Terraces are another story. But it is rare that I see someone using their balcony. Mostly they are used as a selling point for real estate sales. Nobody uses them. Maybe for smoking at a party. Or a little storage area. Or to let a dog pee.

Donnie Moder, My usual response would be to say "Pshaw!" at your comment that balconies are wasted space, but this time I'm going to say "In what way is the space wasted?"

People like balconies, and people *do* use them. I think it should be a requirement that every new apartment have a balcony, so-called "affordable" apartments too.
