Review of 347 Bowery by Carter Horsley

This 13-story building at 347 Bowery on the northeast corner at East 3rd Street has a two-story commercial base and a setback residential tower.

  The 11-stories in the tower contain only four duplex units and the triplex penthouse unit.   Urban Muse is the developer.   Annabelle Selldorf is the architect, who also designed 200 Eleventh Avenue for the same developer.   Oheme, Van Sweden is the landscape architect.   The site was formerly a Salvation Army shelter and had been acquired in 2011 by the Louzon Hotel Group.  Urban Muse acquired the cite  in 2013.   The building is also known as 1 East 3rd Street.

Bottom Line

With its shiny zinc setback tower and bright retail base, this project continues the remarkable transformation of the city's most famous sleazy street.


The base of the building is clad in light gray Kolumba brick and the tower is clad in zinc panels.

  Residents  will enter the building through a gated mews with a courtyard wall of magnolias on the sidestreet that leads to the attended lobby.   The roof of the retail base  is a garden designed by Oheme, Van Sweden Landscape Architects.   The building is just to the south of a mid-block tower designed by Robert Scarano that is a few stories higher.


The building has an attended lobby, a roof deck and a keyed elevator.


Each apartment has a spiral staircase and a suspended catwalk overlooking the main living space that provides  a separation between the master and secondary apartments.

  The three-bedroom duplex has a hallway entrance off the elevator on its first floor that leads to a 19-foot-wide, double-height dining room opposite the spiral staircase and next to the 16-foot-wide living room with a balcony that wraps around the building's southwest corner and a 16-foot-long open kitchen.  The dining room is also adjacent to the unit's third bedroom.  There are two  other bedrooms on the upper level.
