A Curbed reader writes with a counter-rumbling about the development activity on Orchard:
i know this is a bit of a contradiction to the earlier report of condos (and they do seem more likely in comparison), but at the community board meeting earlier this week, the space on orchard across from pomeranc's hotel/spa monstrosity, was revealed as.. a W hotel. unbelieveable. so now you'll be able to walk from ludlow through the lobby of the w to orchard through another hotel lobby to allen. splendid.Perhaps there is some confusion and there will be both a new luxury condo and a new luxury hotel on Orchard. We certainly hope so, because it's been days since we've seen a really well-organized human chain.
