Thor Equities has leased 2,200 s/f at 195 Bowery in Manhattan to Pop International Galleries.
Pop International, which specializes in pop and urban art, is relocating from its longtime space on West Broadway in SoHo.
It will join a number of leading art galleries that have moved to the Bowery in recent years including Sperone Westwater, Salon 94 and Lehmann Maupin.
“The Bowery is continuing to emerge as one of Manhattan’s most vibrant commercial corridors, fueled by the area’s boutique hotels, museums, art galleries and nightlife,” said Melissa Gliatta, COO of Thor Equities.
195 Bowery is also located near the New Museum and planned Ace Hotel on Bowery, as well as retailers including Nudie Jeans, Maison Kitsune and Freemans Sporting Club.
195 Bowery features 1,700 s/f of ground floor space and 30 feet of frontage on Bowery. The mixed-use building also includes high-end condominiums on the upper floors.
Thor Equities owns a number of additional properties in the area including 176 Bowery, 734 Broadway, 30 Bond Street and 50 Bond Street.
