In short, 50-52 Bowery was razed last year for this. A force-feeding of twenty-two stories of glass. The rendering recently stapled to perimeter plywood perfectly encapsulates the collective fears of this neighborhood ever since word started going around about a new hotel here. The Hotel Bowery.
As we reported two weeks ago, the DOB approved permits to finally construct the 229-room hotel. Alex Chu is the owner-developer of the project and Peter Poon Architects is behind the design you see above. Meanwhile, it appears that excavation work is already underway.
