Anthropologie Exit from 250 Bowery Begets New Leasing Sign
This image has been archived or removed.
Anthropologie canceled its lease at 250 Bowery a couple weeks ago, as exclusively reported here. Official reason given at the time was that the landlord failed to meet so-called “performance dates” due to alleged damage from Hurricane Sandy. Sources say that was merely an excuse for the prospective tenant not approving the current buildout.
In the wake of this news, the entire rusty facade was shielded with blue tarps, presumably to cover the store branding. As of yesterday, public confirmation of the aborted deal finally reached the street via RKF leasing sign. No listing currently exists on the company website, but we are told that $1 million per annum is the rent sought for the 10,000 square-foot space (plus basement).
Who wants to bet that a bank will anchor this new development?
