The John Lamb tanked, and is now permanently out of commission after less than a year. Lights are off and furniture left for dead.

Fair Warning: ‘The John Lamb’ at the 119 Orchard Hotel Has Nightclub Written All Over it

Last modified September 11, 2016 at 8:26 pm

Like all the hotels in Hell Square, 119 Orchard Street sure took its time. Construction has been terribly slow in recent years, thanks in large part to constant stop-work orders. Five years after SAS Property Management (aka Shimon Avadi) tore down the tenement building, the incomplete hotel at 119 Orchard Street has finally undergone the […]

119 Orchard Street Completely Demolished

Last modified June 27, 2012 at 1:27 am

It’s a heartbreaking sight, really. Watching the upper reaches of Orchard Street fall to the wrecking ball, one turn-of-the-century tenement at a time. And now, where Fine & Klein Handbags once stood at 119 Orchard, wreckage galore. Alas, the week starts on a sour note. Each day for the last month, a half-dozen demolition workers […]

Thar she blows!  A tad more than two weeks after plywood was installed at the onetime home of Fine & Klein Handbags, what remains of the beleaguered 119 Orchard Street is coming down.

119 Orchard One Step Closer to Demolition

Posted October 20, 2010 at 6:33 am

Given the uptick in construction lately, it seems many long-dormant developments in the neighborhood are slowly being nursed back to health.  For instance, work on the future hotel at 163 Orchard Street was revived just last week, and is rising fast.  Now, one block south, activity has been renewed at 119 Orchard, formerly known as […]
