One Orchard Street storefront is trading ties for Thai.

As predicted, the owner behind the popular Lovely Day is opening an establishment at 14 Orchard Street. We first reported the news two months ago, but received an official confirmation thanks to the standard Community Board 3 neighborhood notice. Such signage is currently taped to the entrance of the store.

Kazusa Jibiki is the applicant of record for the beer-wine license here, the same proprietor who opened Lovely Day on Elizabeth Street ten years ago. She’ll appear before CB3 next month at the SLA subcommittee meeting.

The current occupant at 14 Orchard – Alexander Olch’s tie shop – will soon relocate to the corner of Canal in what was previously the Shang Wang Market. Permits were issued by the Department of Buildings last week for the former Chinese bodega. This is a substantial upgrade for Olch, who is simultaneously converting the old warehouse at 7-11 Ludlow Street into the Metrograph theater.

Everything is happening at once…
