Under construction for more than two years, we now have an updated glimpse of the forthcoming 347 Bowery.

More luxury living for Bowery 2.0. What was once a Salvation Army stalwart for several decades is almost ready for its coronation. The thirteen-story mixed-use beast, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, topped off three months ago, yet remains incomplete behind a shroud of netting.

“Skid Row no more,” the hype email from the Compass brokerage states.

The 13-story tower will consist of four duplex town homes, and one triplex penthouse. Retail space will occupy the first and second floors.

With nearly 20 foot ceilings, each residence will feature a handcrafted staircase made of plaster and white oak. Catwalk bridges on the upper levels will separate the master suite from the guest bedrooms; all of the units include balconies with sunset views over Manhattan.

Residents will have access to a 3rd floor rooftop garden designed by Oehme, Van Sweden Landscape Architecture, in addition to gated mews featuring a wall of pleached magnolias.

347 Bowery is slated to be completed later this year. Leonard Steinberg of Compass is exclusively handling the sales and marketing.

Prices start at $6.5 million.

The privately-held Urban Muse had acquired 347 Bowery from Louzon Hotel Group back in July 2013 for $19 million, after the latter company balked on its glitzy hotel plans. Looks like that whole same-floor parking scheme is not part of the equation here.
