SOHO — A bike shop being ousted by the upcoming massive Gansevoort Street redevelopment is eyeing a space in SoHo.
Rapha Cycle Club sits at 64 Gansevoort St., in one of the buildings being developed by Aurora Capital Associates in their redesign of the entire south side of the block from Ninth Avenue to Washington Street.
The Community Board 2 calendar for September shows Rapha is appearing before the board on Sept. 8 seeking a beer-and-wine license for 159 Prince St. Rapha currently has a cycling shop and a cafe that also serves food in its Gansevoort Street space.
The ground-floor storefront of 159, one of the two Pepto Bismol-pink buildings on the northern side of Prince Street between Thompson Street and West Broadway, used to house a belt store. Next to it is Cafe Borgia, at 161 Prince St. Both buildings have residential units in the upper floors.
An employee at Rapha Cycle Club said he wasn't sure if a lease has been signed for the space yet, but confirmed the business was looking into relocating there. He said real estate dealings are done through the company's London office, which did not immediately respond to an emailed inquiry.
Also appearing at CB 2's SLA committee meeting on Sept. 8:
► Spring Street Natural, which is relocating from Spring Street to 98 Kenmare St. but keeping its name, is applying for a full liquor license, according to the CB2 calendar.
► A new business by Derek M. Koch planned for 90 Thompson St. is seeking a full liquor license. Koch did not immediately respond to an emailed inquiry.
► The boutique hotel The Broome at 431 Broome St. is seeking a full liquor license for a lobby bar that will seat about eight people at a total of four tables, according to a spokeswoman for the hotel.
The meeting will be held at St. Anthony of Padua Church at 151-144 Sullivan St. at 6:30 p.m.
