Demolition Underway at 263-265 Broome Hotel Site
This image has been archived or removed.
The tenement takedown is in full effect over at Allen and Broome Streets. Here, of course, is the site of a future boutique hotel.
Demolition teams have been hyperactive at the project site – 263-265 Broome – for the last few weeks. Drilling, hammering, etc. Dust plumes a frequent sight. And yesterday, the skeletal scaffolding and its sibling of netting was installed. Once these two corner buildings fall, construction will begin on the seven-story (80 feet) Lower East Side lodge. It’ll offer forty-five dwelling units. Sun Sun Property Investment and architect SM Tan Architect are behind the project.
