It appears the debut of Nine Orchard, the boutique hotel in the landmarked Jarmulowsky Bank Building, is finally upon us. The 14-story tower, built in 1912, was purchased back in 2011 by DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners. A painstaking restoration of the property, including re-establishing the distinctive 60-foot-tall spire on the rooftop, has been going on for years. The other day, the PR team for the hotel announced a spring 2022 opening.
A press release noted that guest room bookings are available starting July 1. The acclaimed chef, Ignacio Mattos (Estela, Altro Paradiso, Lodi) is behind Nine Orchard’s multiple restaurants, bars and event spaces. Mattos Hospitality has been staffing up for awhile. As noted on the website Culinary Agents, “The Food and Beverage program at Nine 9 Orchard will include an elegant, upscale restaurant, a neighborhood bar and lounge, a rooftop bar, in-room dining and a collection of private event spaces.”
As highlighted in the recent press eblast, “The lobby features a soaring, vaulted ceiling and large, arched windows; here, where bank tellers once worked, guests can check-in, lounge and enjoy a coffee or drink.” There are 116 guest rooms, including three suites which include terraces.
The Jarmulowsky property was purchased in 2011 by DLJ for $33 million. It became a city landmark back in 2009.
