Where Vaping Previously Failed, ‘Vapeology’ Smokes up 166 Orchard Street

Posted January 20, 2017 at 5:09 am

Meet the new tenant at 166 Orchard Street. Same as the old. Well, almost. Six months after the departure of Vapeya from the retail landscape, something called Vapeology just moved down from upstate. It’s been open for a few weeks now. The interior looks basically identical to its predecessor – an L-shaped glass bar backed […]

Looks Like the 10-Year-Old ‘Dressing Room’ is not Long for Orchard Street

Posted January 11, 2017 at 5:00 am

On Orchard Street, sneakers and spirits are threatened, as the Dressing Room may soon undress for the last time. Tombstone leasing signage, courtesy of Samy Mahfar’s REAL New York brokerage, is presently affixed above the door. There are no listings online yet, and the proprietors didn’t immediately return a request for comment. Before the “museum block” […]

T-Shirt Express Moves up the Block as 15 Orchard Street Changes Hands

Posted January 3, 2017 at 5:15 am

T-Shirt Express, the wholesale apparel shop known for its cheap price points on everything from tees and hoodies to custom designs, is on the move. Purportedly forced out due to real estate speculation. But it’s not going far. Last week, the store began packing up its longtime headquarters at 15 Orchard Street for greener pastures up […]

Chinese Church on Allen Street Changes Hands for $11.4M

Posted December 21, 2016 at 5:14 am

The Chinese Christian Herald Crusades church finally found a buyer for its property at 48 Allen Street (aka 49 Orchard). The seven-story property had been on and off the market the last few years without any bites. Until last week, when Hogg Holdings snapped it up for $11.4 million, $3.6 million shy of its prior […]

Long-Running ‘Clinton Supermarket’ Put on the Market for $24K

Posted December 20, 2016 at 5:00 am

One commercial anchor of upper Clinton Street is reaching a dead end. The Chinese-leaning Clinton Supermarket – on the block for more than a decade – just hit the market last week. Meaning, another lifeblood for locals is set to disappear. Indeed, a real estate listing popped up on Craigslist a few days ago for the […]

Fifteen Years on, ‘Bite’ Snack Shop Might Move 2 Doors Down on Lafayette Street

Posted December 7, 2016 at 5:00 am

The narrow spearhead of real estate at the triangular confluence of Bleecker, Lafayette, and Mulberry Streets is undergoing another retail shift. In the year since Pinche Taqueria ended its brief tenure at 333 Lafayette, the tiny space has remained largely dormant. Leasing signage, courtesy of Winick, did make an appearance. However, the glass was predominantly […]

Tapeo29 Ended its 12-Year Run on Clinton Street Last Week

Posted December 6, 2016 at 5:00 am

Spanish tapas standby on Clinton Street, Tapeo29, ended its run on the block last week, capping twelve years in the area. Owner Ofir Yaloz didn’t specify a reason for the closure, noting only that the decision was “personal.” There might be plans for a new restaurant in the future, but no details beyond that nugget […]

Listed: Wassail Cider Bar Might Not Last Much Longer on Orchard Street

Posted November 28, 2016 at 5:00 am

Just a short month after the second annual LES Cider Fest took over upper Orchard Street, one of its biggest proponents (and beneficiaries) might soon close. Indeed, Wassail now has brokers shopping around the space. Real estate listings are peppered about Craigslist and included in Sinvin’s online portfolio. The twenty-month-old business – occupying 2,000 square-feet on […]

Weilgus & Sons Building on East Broadway Hits the Market for $11M

Posted November 2, 2016 at 5:01 am

The eastern fringe of Chinatown is really starting to sell off. Lots of building transactions, hoity-toity galleries, and bar-restaurants. As a result, the area totally resettled, and should succumb to the pressures of hyper-gentrification in short order. Case in point is 158 East Broadway, with Weilgus & Sons on the ground level. The tenement just hit […]

Chefs Club Brings its Fast Casual ‘Counter’ to Former Spring Natural Space

Posted October 31, 2016 at 5:16 am

When Spring Street Natural was forced from its namesake street last year, the subsequent rent hike was essentially an admission that the next tenant would be something more bougie. We learned at the time of their departure from 62 Spring – back in late 2015 – that founding owner-operator Rus Schoenholt faced an expiring lease with a […]
