Manhattan Stone Industry Takes Over at 195 Bowery

Posted on: June 24th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

More than six months after DCKT Contemporary decamped for Eldridge Street, 195 Bowery is throwing a wrench into the popular practice of ground-level galleries for residents of luxury living. Rather than become another whitewashed space with two paintings on the walls, the storefront just scored a commercial tenant.

A new tile supplier dubbed Manhattan Stone Industry is the newest addition to the block above Delancey. The marquee remained rather bare until a couple weeks ago when a more pronounced awning arrived onsite.

Meanwhile, the store to the immediate south, 193 Bowery, is currently in flux. Back in April, Advanced Kitchen Supply folded into the bigger Master Kitchen Supplies space at the base of 38 Delancey. Their former home is currently seeking new commercial tenants, advertising as much in the windows. Given its location in the shadow of a soon-to-be-built CitizenM hotel, we should probably expect a gallery or other high-end sort of occupant.
