The first permits are up for a new mixed-use building at 141 Bowery; the site’s developer is Patrick Wu of Global Joint Venture, Inc., and the architect of record is Raymond Chan.
141 Bowery will measure 35,192 square feet, and the building will stand eleven stories and 104 feet tall. The first five floors will have retail and offices spanning 19,189 square feet, as well as 783 square feet for an ambulatory care center.
Above, twenty apartments will split an additional 15,220 square feet.
The location and choice of architect would indicate that 141 Bowery will be developed with a relatively low budget in mind, and while no renderings have been released, Chan’s portfolio hopefully excludes the possibility of something awful. Given the scope, the project will be simple filler, though it will replace a relatively attractive pre-war low-rise.

Previously approved filings had shown a five-story expansion to the existing structure, though evidently the design has been revised with demolition now in mind.
No completion date has been announced.
