Rest in pieces: The Salvation Army's former East Village Residence is gone

The Salvation Army's former East Village Residence on the Bowery at East Third Street is pretty much officially gone. We spotted a few bricks and beams through the plywood on Saturday. Otherwise…


The serious demo work commenced on Nov. 10.

Workers demolished the building to make way for a 13-floor, 30,000 square-foot mixed-use residential development. We haven't seen any renderings for the new building yet.

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

At 13 floors, it will be blocking some views to residents who live next door at 52E4, the 15 stories of condo with a gated entrance on East Fourth Street. Some residents of the new building will also enjoy pool views below at 52E4.

Whatever happened to that really ugly hotel planned for the Bowery?

seems fitting that those that take away others light, air and views sooner or later lose their light, air and views,

The salvation army sells what was once a shelter and now it becomes luxury housing. This really says all that needs to be said about NYC as we head into 2015. I know the NYC Rescue Mission on Lafayette St gets calls literally every day from developers who want the property. Thankfully the Bowery Mission is a national historic landmark and has some protection. At least I hope it does.
