347 Bowery wrapped and ready for demolition
We first spotted the permits to demolish the Salvation Army's former East Village Residence on the Bowery at East Third Street back in January.
Now workers have apparently finished with the sidewalk bridge and scaffolding at the site. (The first of the demo gear arrived on May 28.)
The sidewalk bridge partially collapsed on June 1. Witnesses said it was struck by a box truck.
The three-story building will give way to a 13-floor, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development that may or may not include same-floor parking privileges.
