It looks as if preliminary work is underway in one of the two storefronts at 200 E. Sixth St., home of the Marymount Manhattan College dormitory on Cooper Square.
In June, CB3 OK'd a beer-wine license for applicants opening a cafe called BRUD. (Or maybe Brud. We've seen spelling for it both ways.)
The CB3 application shows daily hours of 7 a.m. to midnight... with menu items including breakfast wraps, deli sandwiches and salads... as well as tea and coffee. (There's a sample menu on file with the questionnaire at the CB3 website.)
The approved DOB permit for the retail space shows that Emporium Design, whose East Village credits include Boulton & Watt and the Blind Barber, is working on the interior.
The Emporium Design website states that BRUD is a "Shared Office Space and Café Concept."
Here's one of the renderings...
The 13-story dorm opened for Marymount Manhattan College students last August. The dorm sits on a lot previously occupied in part by 35 Cooper Square, the Federal-style building that dated to 1825.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Something 28,998 square feet or so coming to Cooper Square (and goodbye Cooper 35 Asian Pub?)
Proposed dorm for former 35 Cooper Square looks to be 4 floors taller
