Work has started for Book Culture, which will be coming fall of 2017 to 26-09 Jackson Avenue. The book retailer has three locations in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and will open in a building that is owned by Rockrose. The New York Times was the first to report the leasing of the space.1
We were walking by the site earlier in the week and snapped a picture of the work in progress, as seen below. In August, we reported that signage had appeared for the space.2
Here’s more about Book Culture from its website:3
At Book Culture, we know that reading enriches lives, families, and communities. To us, books and publishing are cultural treasures to be kept in trust by those that recognize the value that they hold. To ensure a vibrant and diverse future for books and publishing, a multitude of independent bookstores – each selecting titles based on their own tastes and interests, and those of their local customers, is essential.
