In May of 2015, YIMBY reported that the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved RFR Realty’s planned commercial restoration of the landmarked Germania Bank Building, a six-story, 36,000-square-foot building at 190 Bowery, in NoLIta. Bowery Boogie now reports the restoration is well underway and crews have replaced the property’s windows. A new entrance is also being installed on the ground level and other alterations are now taking place. The building will eventually have a ground-floor retail space and the upper five floors will be leased as office space. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners and MdeAS Architects are behind the restoration design. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
