Brokers Consider 195 Bowery in SoHo

Posted on: February 2nd, 2010 at 6:33 am by

A new listing surfaced over the weekend for a two-bedroom condo inside the slender tumor building that is 195 Bowery. Marketed as a SoHo loft in NoLita’s “tallest loft condo,” the brokers seem confused as to where this is located.  It’s at the eastern corner of Bowery and Spring Street. Definitely NOT SoHo, and barely NoLita, but anything to sell a $2,350,000 condo, right? After all, this is “Manhattan’s chicest neighborhood.”

Similar tactics were utilized last week, advertising a SoHo loft at the corner of Sixth Street and Avenue D.

And of course brokers probably won’t be telling prospective buyers that demolition of the nearby 185-191 Bowery is slated to begin imminently to make way for another shiny new hotel.
