Now that the entire corner of Orchard and East Houston is boxed up, Katz’s Deli is no longer so visible from the western vantage point. Thank landlord-developer Ben Shaoul, who is too busy wielding his sledgehammer to level the block for a 10-story condo building.
Well, the solution arrived this week. A professional sign is now affixed to the sidewalk bridge, alerting tourists that Katz’s is in fact open and only 200 feet away.
As previously reported, a ten-story (120 feet) mixed-use tumor is planned for the 196 Orchard development site. The project boasts 94,923 square-feet of residential area and a commercial footprint of 13,463 square-feet. There will be 83 apartments and an Equinox gym facility. Retail is part of the equation, as well.
