This past Friday, workers began removing the construction netting/bubble wrap from 76 E. Houston St. ... the new two-story building at Elizabeth that has been under construction for an awfully long time (given the size of the project) ...
Construction has been going on now for two years. BoweryBoogie reported in October 2014 that work slowed down here due to Certificate of Occupancy issues and a dispute over the property line. (The issue was reportedly settled last summer.)
By the end of the day Saturday the sidewalk bridge had been carted off...
The previous brokers were billing this location as "the four corners of Downtown," with a summer 2015 completion date.
Cushman & Wakefield have the listing now. (Goldman Properties is the landlord.) The bare-bones listing didn't have much info, except that two commercial spaces are available: the ground floor is 775 square feet and the second level has 680 square feet. (Nothing about that rooftop space.)
The new building is adjacent to the Houston/Bowery Mural Wall, where Logan Hicks starts work on a new piece today.
No. 76 was previously home to the always-entertaining Billy's Antiques.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Deal off to bring Crif Dogs to the former Billy's Antiques space
The Houston/Bowery Mural Wall has been boarded up
Full stop work order for 76 E. Houston St., and the return of Billy's Antiques (sort of)
