After a massive fire leveled the Hong Kong Supermarket and the residential building next door on East Broadway, Marriott seized much of the scorched parcel for its new Fairfield Inn outpost. The remaining sliver of freshly available land was also quickly snatched up for redevelopment. Building permits were filed back in 2009, yet not approved until earlier this year.

And now, the day has finally arrived – 107 East Broadway is ready to rise again. Backhoes are already onsite for excavation activities.

This so-called Lower East Side phoenix is a six-story commercial building forged by the hand of Peter Poon Architects. That name should sound familiar to you, as the company is also involved in the controversial Hotel Bowery which may or may not sit on remnants of the historic, colonial-era Bull’s Head Tavern.

Once built, the new 107 East Broadway will carry nearly 11,000 square-feet of office space. Onsite signage claims that the project completion date is one year from now – fall 2014.

A reminder of the fire…
