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

Back in January, we heard that Salvation Army's former East Village Residence here at East Third Street would yield to a 13-story, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development.

According to preliminary paperwork filed with the city yesterday, the building will, in fact, be 13 floors. There isn't much other info at the moment, so we'll have to wait to see about those same-floor parking spaces.

Here's a sketch of the proposed building for 347 Bowery that we spotted at the owner Urban Muse's website...

To recap what some news here to date.

The Lo-Down reported last July that Urban Muse, a privately held firm that "acquires, develops, repositions, operates and brands" commercial and residential real estate, bought the space in a $19 million deal.

Workers are currently handling the asbestos abatement right now ahead of a demolition.

The Salvation Army's East Village Residence closed in August 2008. (Find some history of the space here.)

I *suppose* anything would be better than that eyesore hotel that looked like it had bursting pimples all over it...altho IMHO what would be best would have been to leave what was there alone.
