Stalled Orchard Street Site Gets A Mural

Marco, of Marcoart, at work on his latest mural in front of 180 Orchard.

As Bowery Boogie mentioned, the stalled building site that has been dubbed “The Orchard Street Hell Building” by Curbed (they have documented the five-year saga of the construction site here) is getting a new mural painted by Marco of Marcoart NYC.

Why the new wrapping on the scaffolding? Marco told The Lo-Down that one of the investors from the Thompson LES hotel (located across the street) implored the developer to do something to make the site (now back on the market) look better.
