The five-story tenement building at 217 E. Broadway changed hands last month for $3.25 million, according to city land records. The buyer is a corporation called 217 East Broadway Management Inc., headed by president Hui Zhen Wang and listing an address in Brooklyn, records show.
The building houses Bo Hai Dumpling Town restaurant on the ground level, which appears to have shuttered.
The sale is just one change happening on the southwestern corner of the intersection of Clinton Street and East Broadway. The building next door, 219 East Broadway, which is also known as 201 Clinton St., is undergoing a significant renovation in the ground-floor commercial space that formerly housed Joon Cleaners. Building department records show permits were issued to owner Mike Wong in January for interior renovations to the existing storefront, with no change in use or occupancy.
