Former nightclub morphing into a shopping center

January 01, 2010 |
Limelight

New York City's Limelight, the one-time notorious church-turned-nightclub, will be restored again, this time as a 25,000-sf retail marketplace. Limelight Marketplace founder Jack Menashe hopes to merge lavish atmospheric elements with cutting-edge fashion, beauty, and gourmet retailers like BookSmart, Caswell Massy, J. Sisters, Silly Souls, and Soapology. Commissioned to restore the 19th-century gothic-style building to its original look, designer James Mansour plans to uncover limestone archways and stained-glass windows that were covered over during the club days.
