Dormant Red Mango on Allen Street Finally Gets a New Tenant
Red Mango closed its Lower East Side location on Allen Street four years ago. The space remained a dusty dormancy for the duration.
Until this month; and henceforth, something completely unexpected. An interior decorator called APex New York that specializes in kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
To be honest, this type of commercial occupant is not usually what lands after an extended retail dry spell. Oftentimes, we see nightlife or something feeding on it.
Red Mango had opened here at 145 Allen Street more than eight years ago, and seemed poised to capitalize on the hordes of hotel guests across the way at the Allen Street Hotel. That hotel still hasn’t launched after a decade under construction, and the frozen yogurt franchise failed after roughly four years. (The hotel will have five bars.)
