Longtime blight on the Lower East Side the Orchard Street Hell Building, having shed its partial Stop Work Order, is careening into the sky and making neighbors—understandably—nervous. Bowery Boogie has some pictures of the looming structure, which has already surpassed the surrounding buildings at 14 stories and is set to grow to 24 stories in 2014. Once completed it will be a Hotel Indigo but currently it is, as ever, just a big annoyance to everyone who lives near it. Lower East Siders complain about endless construction noise, and are also looking toward future problems, such as proposed street-facing outdoor space and an ambiguous parking situation.
