Demolition finally underway at 347 Bowery
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. The scaffolding and construction netting arrived in early June. And now in the past week the jackhammer-toting workers have been on the scene slowly chipping away at the three-story building.
The building will give way to a 13-floor, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development. The project is still waiting for city approval.
Signage points to a Dec. 31 deadline for the demolition.
