Exterior prep work underway at the soon-to-be demolished former Sunshine Cinema
Workers have put up the sidewalk bridge outside the former Sunshine Cinema on East Houston between Forsyth and Eldridge… the first step in securing the circa-1898 building for demolition…
… which is expected soon now that the developers — East End Capital and K Property Group — recently secured a $67 million construction loan to fund the roughly $90 million nine-story office building to come…
Per previous reports, the new building will cater “to deep-pocketed tenants in search of luxury boutique offices,” with a 2021 completion expected.
The five-screen Landmark Sunshine Theater closed Jan. 21, 2018, after 17 years of screening an array of mostly independent and foreign fare.
