180 Orchard Developer Reacts to Noise Complaints

180 Orchard Street.

The residents of upper Orchard Street have been living in a construction zone for almost a decade now.  The perpetually stalled hotel project at 180 Orchard Street finally got moving again a few weeks ago, as crews dismantled the two-story concrete skeleton put in place by previous developers.  While a lot of people are relieved to see some progress at the site, local residents were not at all pleased about the construction noise reverberating throughout the immediate area, which started as early as 7 a.m.  But after a round of calls to Community Board 3 and the Lower East Side BID, the situation seems to have improved.
