LES W Hotel Update: Reply Hazy, Try Again

HotelChatter tried to follow up on our rumormongering about a potential W Hotel on fabulous Orchard St. with some, like, actual reporting(?) or something. HC couldn't quite crack the W rep, but in shocking situations like these that have the potential to permanently alter the future of Manhattan's Lower East Side, any information is better than horrid, horrid silence. Here's what the legwork uncovered:

We went right to the source and asked a W rep what the deal was. He said of the rumor, "from time to time developers check out a site and that is how these rumors get started." He told us he would let us know if he heard anything about an LES W internally.
Holy shit it's happening! Everybody into the bunker! Under the Magician, damn it!
