Four years and seven months. Roughly the length of time between sale, demolition, and opening of the brick-box Holiday Inn at 150 Delancey. That’s right, corporate just announced that, as of this last Friday, the 132-key Lower East Side lodge is currently accepting reservations. There’s even a new Twitter handle specifically for this Sam Chang/Gene Kaufman outpost.
From street level, not much has changed on the exterior since our last checkup, except for the green spotlights that now illuminate the building. Also, plans still point to the diner-style Retro Bar & Grill as the in-house grub spot. And even though, Community Board 3 signaled approval two months ago, the application remains pending with the SLA.
Below is a quick slideshow of the corner lot these last few years.
