A 43-bed shelter for homeless women on Lafayette Street at Bond Street has been sold for $26 million, The Real Deal first reported.
Aby Rosen's RFR Holding is reportedly the new owner.
Per The Real Deal:
The shelter is operated by the Center of Urban Community Services. The organization has run the facility, which it calls “the first ever dedicated to helping homeless NYC women suffering from mental illness to obtain permanent housing,” since 1988.
But the property’s days as a shelter appear to be numbered, with an RKF listing indicating the space is available for a “single tenant” retail opportunity in the third quarter of this year.
The 15,000-square-foot building is in the Noho Historic District.
Rosen is also the new owner of 190 Bowery. Perhaps there will be an art show here too.
