The architectural salvage company known by most design savvy shoppers, Urban Remains, is opening a new location this coming January that will feature Bldg. 51 Gallery's artifacts and handcrafted furniture using repurposed industrial materials.
The showroom is just a few storefronts downy the street from the original Urban Remains warehouse and is in close proximity to the soon-closing Post 27. The shop will integrate the museum collection into the design of the showroom providing a gallery for collectors and making the merchandise make that much more delectable.
But it gets better- the Bldg. 51 Gallery, currently located on the third floor of the building, will be a new venue for private auctions, and serve as a space for lectures on the merchandise and collection.
