We were sad to see Bar Matchless close in January. Following conflicts with the landlord, the popular bar was forced to shut down. According to Greenpoint Post, the building will soon be torn down and turned into a six-story condo with a retail space on the biottom floor:
Permits have been filed for a six story, eight-unit building to go up on the corner of Manhattan and Driggs Avenues where Bar Matchless had operated for 15 years.
The existing building, located at 561 Manhattan Ave., will be demolished to make way for the new structure that will consist of a ground floor eating establishment and residential units.
The developer, Bi Hang Cheng, has yet to file demolition permits. Cheng closed on the property earlier this year for $4,450,000, according to property records.
