250 E. Houston is officially no longer Red Square
Just noting that the Red Square signage was recently removed from 250 E. Houston St. between Avenue A and Avenue B...
The 13-floor building changed hands for a reported $100 million last fall... The Dermot Company has stated they are "creating a more updated style and fit for the cool East Village neighborhood" with the renovations at the retail-residential complex.
Red Square opened for occupancy in June 1989. Workers removed the building's statue of Lenin from the roof last September. It's now standing on a nearby rooftop on Norfolk Street.
