The Bowery promotes and supports an investment in youth, neighborhood pride, an enriched and diverse culture, a safe and healthy community, and a thriving economic climate. The re-imagined Bowery achieves an energetic mix of uses, with 80,000 SF of retail space accessible from the central public plaza, and a neighborhood of five-story rental apartments behind this public asset. The Bowery Drive begins at the project entrance, connects to the public plaza and finds a verdant terminus on the Village’s residential northwest side. Allen Malls, a parallel urban paseo, provides a pedestrian-friendly pathway between the residences and plaza shops. The plaza and promenades serve the entire community not just as thoroughfares, but as a stage for life: social gatherings, food trucks, entertainment, and events.
