Someone really wants to rent 269 E. Houston St.
The Local 269 on East Houston at Suffolk never reopened last fall after a flood apparently KO'd much of the live music venue's equipment.
Applicants who were previously involved with the Apocalypse Lounge (2004-2007) on East Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B apparently had designs on a new bar here. However, the applicants apparently never appeared before the CB3/SLA committee back in March, according to the CB3 meeting record.
Anyway, walking by the other day, we counted nine different for rent/sale signs on the building... (one sign looks to be for an adjacent space...)
Meanwhile, the whole building remains on the market for $12 million.
The Local 269 space was previously home to Meow Mix and Vasmay Lounge. The Local opened in February 2009.
