    This site at the SW corner of The Bowery and East 3rd Street used to be the home of a very grand Dry Dock Savings Bank ...

    It was built in 1875 by Leopold Eidlitz.

    During construction of the Bowery Hotel some remnants of the old bank were dug out of the rubble that had been used to fill in the foundation for John's Garage that stood on this site for many years.

    The old bank can be seen in the film clip posted HERE

    Here's what's coming to 35 Cooper Square: 9-story dormitory


    EV GRIEVE
    AUGUST 21, 2012


    After months of waiting, we finally know what's coming to the former 35 Cooper Square dorms. Today, reps for developer Arun Bhatia pre-filedpaperwork with the DOB for 200 E. Sixth St.

    Here's what we learned from the pre-filing.


    The proposed plans call for a 9-story dormitory with 43 rooms ... plus retail on the ground floor. In total, the building will be nearly 35,000 square feet (at a height of 117 feet). The paperwork lists Debra Kossar of Kossar & Garry Architects as the architect of record.

    No indication just yet who the dorms are for NYU and Cooper Union would have to top the list of guesses, of course.

    The closing of the Asian Pub in January 2011 at 35 Cooper Square set in motion a sequence of events that led to the demolition of the 185-year-old, Federal-style house.

    The Arun Bhatia Development Organization has developed dorms for the New School and Marymount Manhattan College, among others, through the years.

    Previously on EV Grieve:

    Something 28,998 square feet or so coming to Cooper Square (and goodbye Cooper 35 Asian Pub?)

    In other words, we lost a historic little gem for a POS. NYC is f..cked up.

    Wow that's bad. If they had just built the 6 story base by itself it would have fit into the neighborhood better but that top part sticks out like a sore thumb. All the NYU dorms on 3rd ave are just as shitty though.
