Zarin Fabrics Opening New Showroom at 69 Orchard Street

While it stagnates on the open market (for $32 million), onsite activities at 314 Grand Street are gaining steam. The entire ground level of the corner building is now vacant, save for the sliver storefront presently occupied by The Cast around the corner on Orchard. Zarin Fabrics removed its showroom and is now simply operating its warehouse on the second floor. Or so we thought.

The retail unit made empty by the recent departure of Howard Sportswear at 69 Orchard is coming alive again. The store is currently amidst a strict regimen of gut renovation. We hear that Zarin will make this their newer, albeit smaller, display room and entrance. Local architecture firm Giants in the Dirt was tasked with design responsibilities, and already began the rollout with those fresh vinyl banners and flags you see wrapping the second-story windows.

The new Zarin footprint should be ready to rock n roll in about two months; the second floor will remain as fabric warehouse.

TD Bank is also on its way to this location…
