Branded sidewalk bridge arrives at 347 Bowery along with prices for the million-dollar condos

There are finally more details to note about 347 Bowery, the 13-story, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development rising at East Third Street.

All we heard before was that the project will feature 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.

First! The 347 Bowery branding went up on the sidewalk bridge over the weekend...

Meanwhile, Curbed reported yesterday that units at the former home of the Salvation Army's East Village Residence will start at $6.5 million. (Curbed has some interior renderings too.)

Here's more:

[C]eilings in the living areas will reach nearly 20 feet, and each apartment will have a handcrafted staircase of plaster and white oak. On the upper floors, the master bedroom will be separated from secondary bedrooms by way of a catwalk. All condos in the building will have a terrace.

And per the marketing materials: "The building's transformation, from a former Salvation Army shelter to an upscale condo, is a testament to the neighborhood's changing demographics."

Sales are expected to start later this month.

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

Whatever happened to that really ugly hotel planned for the Bowery?

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

The city is starting to look increasingly like Miami. And not beautiful Art Deco Miami, but the shiny pack-'em-in-shiny-glass-buildings part of Miami.

Pffft, there's a handcrafted staircase in my 6-floor walk-up!


I still think the Bowery Hotel has done the best job integrating their architectural aesthetic with the existing neighborhood. This building looks so cheap and awkward.

Prices will START at $6.5 million?!? Good God, what alternate reality has this city been sucked into while nobody was looking?!?

The irony is lost on the developers, tear down a building that helped the poorest and put up a castle for the rich.

Another little corner of Bloombergia comes to fruition.

...and just imagine if you had $6.5 million. Would you really want to live there?
