Update: Sam Chang’s Delancey Holiday Inn
It’s been a steady eight months of inactivity at 148-154 Delancey. Last summer, the row of old-school retail was razed to make way for Sam Chang’s new six-story Holiday Inn hotel venture. Since that time, however, the empty sandlot at the northeast corner of Suffolk Street has become little more than a receptacle for neighborhood trash (broken glass, umbrellas, containers, etc.). But now the gears of progress are in motion again. There is life.
New building permits filed with the DOB just last Friday indicate that excavation and foundation work should begin imminently. Ground breaking and sidewalk shed are forthcoming.
PROPOSE TO PERFORM EXCAVATION AND FOUNDATION FOR NEW HOTEL BUILDING AND INSTALL TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION FENCE.
